Fields of Glory
The Battle of the Somme was one of the bloodiest of the First World War. Between 1 July and 18 November 1916, the British and French armies fought the Germans on both sides of the upper reaches of the River Somme in France. The battle was intended to hasten a victory for the Allies and was the largest battle of the First World War on the Western Front. More than one million men were wounded or killed, making it one of the bloodiest battles in human history.
