Pour cela, elle a pu rencontrer le percussionniste Sonny Troupé et le grand chanteur René Geoffroy, et assister à un “kout tambour” par le collectif Fos é Tradisyon, rassemblement populaire dédié aux morts et aux défunts.

This episode looks at the fighting around Touvent Farm, a critical strong point on what was to become the Somme battlefields.  For seven days in June 1915, French infantry fought hand-to-hand with fanatical German defenders to capture this important strongpoint. We begin by looking at the French army and its evolution during the Great War.  Consisting largely of conscripted men, over 8 million were called into service.  We look at their weapons and how their famous red trousers became a political issue in the French parliament.  We meet a French gunner who wrote one of the most powerful narratives of combat to come out of the Great War, and why supply problems led to the production of the famous blue French uniform.We then look at the fighting around Touvent Farm, where France emerged victorious,  but at what cost?Support the podcast:https://www.buymeacoffee.com/footstepsbloghttps://www.patreon.com/footstepsofthefallen

Apologies for the sound issues in this episode, it was recorded online and sadly the Internet connection was misbehaving. The sound is not of the usual standard, but this was out of my control. In our latest episode of Trench Talk we are joined by Richard Dunning MBE, the owner of the Lochnagar Crater at La Boiselle.  In this wide-ranging chat we talk about how reading a paperback book in the middle of a riot in Chicago led Richard on a lifetimes journey into the Somme battlefields.  We hear about the impact the fighting at La Boiselle had on the veterans who fought there, the most common question Richard gets asked, how a conversation in a clump of weeds led an inner-city lad to study history at University, and the perils of inviting Cossacks to the 1st July memorial service. https://www.buymeacoffee.com/footstepsbloghttps://www.patreon.com/footstepsofthefallen

The Secret Battle by A. P. Herbert audiobook. Like many soldiers at the beginning of their military careers, Harry Penrose has romantic ideas of climbing the ranks and attaining hero status. However, while stationed at Gallipoli, the realities of war begin to take their toll on Penrose, not only physically, but also mentally where the war has become a 'battle of the mind.' This is his story as related by a fellow soldier, as well as the story of the campaign at Gallipoli which is vividly portrayed from the author's own personal experiences. During his tenure as an officer, Penrose slowly asserts himself; the war takes a toll on his personality, but he begins to live up to his early dreams of heroism. However, his creeping self-doubt grows by degrees; following Gallipoli, he is reassigned from his post as scouting officer once on the Somme, knowing he cannot face another night patrol, and earns the wrath of his commanding officer - an irascible Regular colonel - over a trivial incident. The colonel piles difficult, risky work on him - remarking to the narrator that "Master Penrose can go on with [leading ration parties] until he learns to do them properly" - and Penrose submits, working doggedly to try and keep from cracking. After a long period of this treatment, by the winter of 1916, Penrose's spirit is worn down. What follows his downward spiral may surprise and even shock today's readers, but was common and controversial at the time.

The Western Front evokes images of mud-spattered men in waterlogged trenches, shielded from artillery blasts and machine-gun fire by a few feet of dirt. This iconic setting was the most critical arena of the Great War, a 400-mile combat zone stretching from Belgium to Switzerland where more than three million Allied and German soldiers struggled during four years of almost continuous combat. It has persisted in our collective memory as a tragic waste of human life and a symbol of the horrors of industrialized warfare. In this epic narrative history, the first volume in a groundbreaking trilogy on the Great War, the acclaimed military historian Nick Lloyd captures the horrific fighting on the Western Front beginning with the surprise German invasion of Belgium in August 1914 and taking us to the Armistice of November 1918. Drawing on French, British, German, and American sources, Lloyd weaves a kaleidoscopic chronicle of the Marne, Passchendaele, the Meuse-Argonne, and other critical battles, which reverberated across Europe and the wider war. From the trenches, where men as young as 17 suffered and died, to the headquarters behind the lines where Generals Haig, Joffre, Hindenburg, and Pershing developed their plans for battle, Lloyd gives us a view of the war both intimate and strategic, putting us amid the mud and smoke while at the same time depicting the larger stakes of every encounter. He shows us a dejected Kaiser Wilhelm II―soon to be eclipsed in power by his own generals―lamenting the botched Schlieffen Plan; French soldiers piling atop one another in the trenches of Verdun; British infantryman wandering through the frozen wilderness in the days after the Battle of the Somme; and General Erich Ludendorff pursuing a ruthless policy of total war, leading an eleventh-hour attack on Reims even as his men succumbed to the Spanish Flu. 35 black-and-white illustrations, 8 maps

A bloody great hole in the ground - La Boiselle

Footsteps of the fallen

In our latest episode we visit the tiny Somme hamlet of La Boiselle and look at the action which led up to the creation of the massive Lochnagar Crater, which stands on the site to this day as a memorial to the men who died in combat on the first day of the Somme.The men of Tyneside paid a heavy toll at the hands of German machine gunners, and we look at how German intelligence intercepts rendered any element of surprise obsolete.  We hear about the three Victoria Cross winners from the fighting at La Boiselle, including the eccentric and bellicose Adrian Carton de Wiart, a man who described WW1 as really rather good fun.  Our episode concludes with looking at the works of William Orpen, the official war artist, a man who never let the truth get in the way of gaining access to the battlefields, and who used his connections with senior command to get him out of numerous scrapes as he travelled the battlefield producing his exceptional works of art.Support the podcast:https://www.patreon.com/footstepsofthefallenhttps://www.buymeacoffee.com/footstepsblog

This is the thirty-second installment in Eric Ludy's epic summer Daily Thunder series entitled Spiritual Lessons from WW1. This episode investigates Winston Churchill's secret Landships Committee gatherings in 1915 and follows it to its intriguing conclusion—the invention and production of the tank. The tank, originally envisioned by H.G. Wells in his short story, The Land Ironclads, this armored ship that sailed the land, became the answer to the great dilemma of overcoming the barbed wire barrier in no man's land in 1916 when it debuted in the Battle of the Somme. However, as impressive as the tank is now, its first steps forward in the Fall of 1916 were anything but impressive.

This episode explores the beginnings of the Battle of the Somme (July 1,, 1916) —one of the most disturbing experiences the British endured in the entirety of WW1. 60,000 British were lost in a single day.
