By the end of the action, very little ground had been won: the Allied Forces had made just twelve kilometers. For this slight gain, a more than a million lives were lost. There were more than 400,000 British, 200,000 French, and 500,000 German casualties during the fighting. Twelve Days is a narrative of the last spell of front-line duty performed by the 2/West Yorkshires. Written by Sidney Rogerson, a young officer in µB Company, it gives an extraordinarily honest account of twelve days during the battle of the Somme.

From the terrible panic of crossing no-mans-land, to the squalid drudgery of trench life, Rogerson creates a full and evocative picture of this horrific conflict.
