On the 1 July , it was years since the beginning of the Battle of the Somme. Beginning at am, the battle would last for days, and would become one of the bloodiest battles of the First World War. On the first day alone there were o British casualties.   Roman-built but shell-battered, it bisects the Somme battlefield and cuts through many of the pictures in this book. The effect of juxtaposed text and image is deeply moving.

This book ranged from 2 to 5 Stars for me. Two stars because I expected a history of the Somme battle. This is not a history of the Somme campaign, it is a haphazard account of days, conditions, participants, events large and small over a period from July 1, to November /5(39).

Lee Kuan Yew's The Singapore Story is a good choice, albeit through his eyes, it is also an advantage as you get to look at the history of Singapore from the eyes of someone who shaped Singapore.

And he is quite a good writer too, so it is an inte. A great book which explains the whole of the Somme Campaign rather than dwelling on the initial first day. If you understand the whole series of battles in the campaign you will get to understand why ultimately the allies won and why Haig wasn't the butcher that he's made out to be by many/5(19).

“The hawker center was a large, open-air hall that housed four dozen independently owned food stalls, each specializing in a single signature dish, from barbecued stingray coated in fiery, pungent shrimp paste to Hokkien mee, a mixture of yellow and rice noodles, fried with eggs and then braised in rich, savory prawn stock.” ― Kirstin Chen, Soy Sauce for Beginners.
