✏Mametz Wood Book Summary : "Mametz Wood" is the centrepiece of three short stories that give us fascinating glimpses into the life of Gwilym Jones, known in his hometown as "Gwilym Champion." Captain of the Rugby team, Miner, Bare-knuckle boxer, Family man and member, from aged 17, of the 19th Battalion of the Welsh Regiment who fought so hard at Mametz Wood on the Somme in 1916. We see him in old age through the eyes of his young grandson, in middle age in a warm and funny story about a miners outing and as a young man caught up in one of the most vicious battles of the Great War, an experience shared by Siegfried Sassoon; written about by Robert Graves in "A Dead Boche" and also by David Jones in his epic poem, "In Parenthesis." It is a small part of the story of a far from ordinary man born into the tumultuous events of the first half of the twentieth century as recounted by him to his son and observed, as the generations passed each other, by his grandson, me.

✏Silent General Book Summary : This biography assesses Henry Horne's relationship with Haig and the Canadian Corps. It also evaluates his contribution to the technical advances of the artillery during the war and describes the battles which he conducted. It attempts to accord to Henry Horne the recognition and credit that he deserves but which has been withheld. Whether or not Henry Sinclair Horne was the 'silent' General he might lay claim to being the 'forgotten' General of the Western Front. His self-effacement in a profession not renowned for shrinking violets undoubtedly made its contribution to his relative anonymity-- he wrote no memoirs nor kept anything more than sketchy diaries.

✏The Killing Ground Book Summary : This books explains why the British Army fought the way it did in the First World War. It integrates social and military history and the impact of ideas to tell the story of how the army, especially the senior officers, adapted to the new technological warfare and asks: Was the style of warfare on the Western Front inevitable?Using an extensive range of unpublished diaries, letters, memoirs and Cabinet and War Office files, Professor Travers explains how and why the ideas, tactics and strategies emerged. He emphasises the influence of pre-war social and military attitudes, and examines the early life and career of Sir Douglas Haig. The author's analysis of the preparations for the Battles of the Somme and Passchendaele provide new interpretations of the role of Haig and his GHQ, and he explains the reasons for the unexpected British withdrawal in March 1918. An appendix supplies short biographies of senior British officers. In general, historians of the First World War are in two hostile camps: those who see the futility of lions led by donkeys on the one hand and on the other the apologists for Haig and the conduct of the war. Professor Travers' immensely readable book provides a bridge between the two.
