The Somme
1 July 1916-17 November 1916
On the 1 July 1916 a volunteer British army attacked entrenched German positions in the Department of the Somme in France. Over-reliance on the destruction of enemy defences by preparatory artillery bombardment led to almost 60,000 British casualties on the first day and more than 400,000 before the fighting ended on 17 November 1916. The maximum advance made in all that time was six and half miles. Total German casualties are estimated to have been about the same as the British.
