Through German eyes : the British and the Somme 1916 by Christopher Duffy ( Book )
8 editions published between 2006 and 2007 in English and held by 284 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The Battle of the Somme has an enduring legacy, the image of 'lions led by donkeys' established by Alan Clarke; of brave British soldiers sent to their deaths by incompetent generals. But as Christopher Duffy reveals in this groundbreaking study, this was never the Germany view; indeed, the Germans had great respect for the British forces. The evidence for this is both copious and unfamiliar, discovered in archived official papers, histories, memoirs and letters, and most revealingly of all in the results of the interrogation of British prisoners of war... This book is not another of the number of comprehensive histories of the Battle of the Somme. Instead it looks at aspects of the battle from the German point of view, showing in particular the Germans' perception of the British performance and mentality in the course of that long struggle"--Dust jacket
