The Battle of Somme is one of the landmark battles of the First World War and a turning point in the conflict. In the summer of 1916, British and French forces attempted to break through the German lines, but the offensive would exact a terrible human cost. The Somme casts a long shadow on those communities who lost so many of their men.
