The essay and bibliography cover the essential information and controversies regarding the World War I battle that is credited as being a turning point in the war. The essay provides factual background, identifying major historiographical contentions, including the quality of British generalship, the use of technology, and the effectiveness of tactical planning. The alphabetically arranged bibliography consists of military history works related to Somme, but because aspects of strategy were influenced by politics some politically focused volumes have also been included.

Dersu Uzala is a fascinating character I first learned of in 'The Tiger: a true story of vengeance and survival' by B.C. author John Vailant , which is a way better read than Arseniev's repetitious narrative. Die-hard Dersu fans will find gems of insight as to his extraordinary tracking skills if they patiently 'bore' (I pun. Ha.) Their way through (yes, ol' V.K. is 'boring'.) I found myself crawling over each page at a snails pace not wanting to miss the glitters of brilliance it does have. Difficult reading. But invaluable for learning more about someone so intriguing and mysterious.
