The Battle of the Somme was fought by the armies of Britain and France against the German Empire. The action took place on both sides of the upper reaches of the River Somme in France between 1 July and 18 November 1916. It was the largest battle of the Western Front, with more than one million men wounded or killed, making it one of the bloodiest battles in human history.
