Remembered Today:

Attack; An Infantry Subaltern's Impression of July 1st 1916


Recommended Posts

It was written by 2nd Lt E G D Liveing, 1/12th London Regt (The Rangers) who was wounded in the attack. He was wounded in the hip and had just crossed the sunken road astride which the Rangers attacked when 1791 Rfn Charles William Dennison, who had been instructed to follow Liveing as his observer, tried to reach him and was shot down, probably by a machine gun which was shooting down the length of the lane. Dennison had been twice wounded in the head. His body was never recovered and his name is on the Thiepval Memorial.

Delighted to say I have a (I think) 1st edition, purchased for the princely sum of £1 a few years back. Good book.
