Product Overview

Edward George Downing Liveing (1895-1963) was an author and historian. His works include: Attack: An Infantry Subaltern''s Impression of July 1st, 1916 (1918), The House of Harrild, 1801-1948 (1949), Adventure in Publishing (1949), Pioneers of Petrol (1959) and A Century of Insurance (1961). "The attack on the fortified village of Gommecourt, which Mr. Liveing describes in these pages with such power and colour, was a part of the first great allied attack on July 1, 1916, which began the battle of the Somme. That battle, so far as it concerns our own troops, may be divided into two sectors: one, to the south of the Ancre River, a sector of advance, the other, to the north of the Ancre River, a containing sector, in which no advance was possible. Gommecourt itself, which made a slight but important salient in the enemy line in the containing sector, was the most northern point attacked in that first day''s fighting. "
