Robin Prior studies the chapter on the Battle of the Somme in Winston Churchill’s World Crisis in his article “Churchill & the Battle of the Somme” published in Wartime: The Official Magazine of the Australian War Memorial. In writing about the 1916 British offensive, Churchill received the assistance of Sir James Edmonds, the British official historian. The chapter was, according to Prior, “a savage indictment of Haig and the High Command” and is “still well worth reading.” The article is available here.
