Centennial of the Battle of the Somme

The bloodiest battle in the history of the British army was the Battle of the Somme during the Great War—since known as World War I. The battle pitted the British (and other nationalities represented with the fighters) against the German army in northern France. Today, the battle and those who died are commemorated by the Thievpal Memorial.
