The Battle of the Somme symbolizes the futility of trench warfare and on the first day of the battle alone the British army suffered its greatest losses in one day. The Somme Offensive took place between 1 July and 18 November 1916 and was one of the largest of World War I. More than 1,000,000 men were wounded or killed, making it one of the bloodiest battles in history. This break gives an insight into this bloody battle which raged for four months of 1916.
