Very thought-provoking article by John Blake in the Times Educational Supplement on some of the myths that need to be debunked surrounding the First World War:  http://www.tes.co.uk/article.aspx?storyCode=6373287

As an aside on the Battle of the Somme, General Ludendorff in his memoirs said that the British Army fought the Germans to a standstill at the Somme.

Also worth reading is Michael Gove's article:  http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2532923/Michael-Gove-blasts-Blackadder-myths-First-World-War-spread-television-sit-coms-left-wing-academics.html
