It’s been a century since Kitchener’s boys marched to their deaths on the fields of France. For many, the Battle of the Somme was the first and last battle they fought in. This issue of All About History follows the incredible and often tragic story of the Pals Battalions who went from the factories to the front line, arriving in Europe in search of adventure but quickly realising the true harsh reality of war. Lest we forget.
