Remembered as one of the most brutal and devastating conflicts in history, the Battle of the Somme killed one million Allied and German soldiers. This book, profusely illustrated with 250 photographs, maps, and illustrations, tells the stories of the 51 men from the British and Empire Forces who were awarded the Victoria Cross during the conflict, the lives they led before the war, and if they survived (one-third did not) how they lived afterwards.
