Battle of the Somme – 8 pm Wed Feb 17th 2021

The blackest day in the history of the British Army

Online talk by Phil Wood

The first day of the battle remains the worst day in the history of the British Army, when it suffered 57,470 casualties, around 20,000 of whom were killed.

The British and French had gained 12km of ground.nbsp;
