Abstract:

Historian Peter Barton explores the events leading up to and on the bloody first day of the offensive. Walking the battlefield, he explains the failures that led to over 20,000 British deaths and argues that to get a better understanding of events, one should not only confront what the British did badly but what their enemy did better. Based on research in German archives, Barton shows just how much they knew in advance about Allied plans through captured documents and interrogations of British prisoners and deserters.
