‘It Happened On This Day…’
The first day of the battle of the Somme (1.07.1916) remains the largest bloodshed in a single day in British military history, almost 60,000 casualties. I recorded the events of this day through the eyes of individual soldiers and entire regiments, documenting their thoughts, feelings and actions. Using pre-1916 typefaces for body text and pull quotes and the typewriter for titles and telegrams ensures the book is relevant to the period. Furthermore, using carbon paper, I stressed each page individually representing the anguish and pain each soldier went through.
