Greeting to everyone! I have not had the opportunity to visit this (or any other forum) for months now due to "domestic matters" and a major cross country move. BTW, I just noticed our new forum home @ SimHQ...I hope the transition goes smoothly.
Anyhow, I recently found a very interesting and well written book by Christoper Duffy: 'through German eyes: The British and the SOMME 1916 (2006). Duffy has done a great job of researching this book, and it is an easy read. He looks at the German Intel procedures during WWI and their fascination with British "home life", as well as military matters, as obtained through PO W's. Duffy also paints a complete portrait of the cosmopolitan make-up of the World before WWI and the "cross cultural" nature of the combatants. It is an extremely objective view, from both sides of 'No Man's Land', during WWI. I am no book or literary scholar, but I think it makes a great addition to any Military History library.
