"The Battle of the Somme has an enduring legacy, the image of 'lions led by donkeys' established by Alan Clark; of brave British soldiers sent to their deaths by incompetent generals. But, as Christopher Duffy reveals in this groundbreaking study, this was never the German 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. The picture that emerges is a far cry from 'Blackadder'." "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. From the German point of view, the battle was a disaster. And the fact that every British soldier taken prisoner still believed Britain would win the war gave German Intelligence teams a fair indication that their empire would go down to defeat."--BOOK JACKET.… (mais)

4622. Through German Eyes The British and the Somme 1916, by Christopher Duffy (read 28 Sep 2009) This is a 2006 book by a British, well, I guess, Irish, historian (his father was an Irish Guardsman in the Great War) telling of the battles of the Somme from July 1 till year's end in 1916. It tells the story based on German records, and especially on the information which captured Englishmen told their German captors--it seems the Germans got lots of valuable information from the loose-lipped English captives. Sometimes it is unclear what the author is describing: what Germans said, what captive English said, or general knowledge of the events. The loss of life was terrible but I agree that the Somme helped the Allies to win the war, even though it was more deadly for the British than for the Germans. There is a good discussion of weapons used in the battle, of gas, of tanks (first used in the battle), and of airplanes. The account of the battles (told in great detail) I found not interest-holding. ( )

Using original german documents that sum up interrogations of allied soldiers captured during the 1916 Somme offensive, Duffy has wrote a masterly book that will give the reader an interesting insight of this battle. I have read a number of books covering the Somme, and this is one of the better ones. A must have for the serious student of the Great War. ( )
