The Somme Despatch
- By: Sir Douglas Haig
- Narrated by: Felbrigg Napoleon Herriot
- Length: 1 hr and 45 mins
The battle of the Somme was the largest battle of the first world war, in which over one million men were killed or wounded, and during which the British army suffered its worst day ever with over sixty thousand casualties. The Commander in Chief of the British forces, Sir Douglas Haig, issued a despatch in the following month via the London Gazette. Part news, part propaganda this despatch failed to mention the tragic losses and maximised the minimal gains.
Nice piece of history
