Marking the centenary of The Battle of the Somme, we take a retrospective look at Hilary Robinson and Martin Impey's essential "Flo of the Somme"

On the 1st of July 1916, one of the fiercest and most bloody battles of the First World War began. The Battle of the Somme resulted in a terrible and tragic loss of life on both sides and in "Flo of the Somme" Hilary Robinson and Martin Impey also remember the animals involved in the conflict, and how their heroic acts contributed to the war effort on both sides.

"Flo of the Somme" was a well deserved Book of the Week last year in October and you can read our original review of the book here:
