The only book about the battle of Hamel we recommand
Hamel by Dr Pedersen
Use links (picture or top) to access a full description or to purchase that book online on the editor's website.
Peter Pedersen, Hamel, Somme, Battleground Europe, Pen & Swords Books, 2003, 160 pages

Released in March 2003, that book have several qualities like:
- a well documented account of the battle, quite neutral and wrote in a clear English
- the other half is a guide for a visit by car or better by walking
The author has a terrific knowledge of the battlefield where he spent a lot of time.
The book is a perfect complement for the OAWG guide, you buy it easily on the internet and its price (c. 15 € or $) made it worth.
