Between July 1st and November 18thof 1916, one of the largest battles of the First World War, was fought by the armies of the British and French empires against the German Empire. The battle occurred on both sides of the River Somme in France and was called The Battle of the Somme. It was one of the bloodiest battles in history in which more than one million men were wounded or killed.

The goal of the British at the time was to attack and take over a stretch of the River Somme. Before the battle began, over 1,700,000 shells were fired by the British but many missed the targets or did not explode. The German soldiers took shelter underground during this attack. On the first day of fighting nearly 60,000 British soldiers were killed, taken prisoner or wounded. There are many interesting memorials a private guide can show you related to The Battle of the Somme.

The Battle of the Somme is famous for the first use of the tank and the importance of air power. Several different weapons were used including machine guns, poisonous gas and mines. The battle ended due to poor weather. The British and French soldiers had only advanced about five miles. Today there are many memorials and cemeteries around the River Somme, including a memorial dedicated to those that died. Don't miss out on a single detail, hire a private guide to show you what others will miss when exploring The Battle of the Somme.
