A Subaltern on the Somme

On the first day of the Somme, 60,000 British men fell and Max Plowman was there to witness it all. Soberly recounting the routine, the boredom, the mud, and the horrors, Plowman also studies the characters of the men he fought with, and for. Originally published in 1928 under the pseudonym “Mark VII”, A Subaltern on the Somme in 1916 remains a classic memoir of the First World War’s Western Front.
