As part of the development of the game of VIII Corps its been really interesting viewing literally hundreds of photographs. Amongst all of these photos one name keeps coming up – Ernest Brooks.
He was the first official photographer on the Western Front and was with VIII Corp in the preparation and attack on the 1st July. As you can see we have used his own photo, a selfie of its time for the game cover.
How ever he did many more photos (over 4000) – some I am showing here (all Somme related)
If you want a good service looking and supplying maps and photos I can recommend Battlefield Historian
