The heaviest losses the British army had incurred, 19,000 troops were Killed,  Even with these huge losses the attack continued and several small advances were made. on the 14th of July the German defences lines were nearly breached. After a 2 month lull, the attack started again but this time 47 tanks took part, but most of them broke down. again a few gains were made, . by the middle of November the total losses were a staggering 615,000 Allied casualties and 500,000 German casualties.

The second Battle of the Somme was the start of the German Spring offensive of the 21st March 1918.

Line of Fire - The Somme 1916


Line of Fire - The Somme 1916

July 1st 1916 was the blackest day in the history of the British Army when a combination of bad planning and German bullets sent Kitcheners Army to their doom. An army that had taken two years to make took only a day to destroy. Taken from the hugely-popular television series Line Of Fire, this programme harnesses state-of-the-art computer technology to explore, explain and bring new perspectives to the battle which symbolises the suffering of the Great War. Featuring archive footage and specially treated recreations, The Somme also includes authoritative comment and analysis by leading military historians from the Royal Military Academy at Sandhurst.

The Great Folly of 1916 by Jason Askew.


The Great Folly of 1916 by Jason Askew.

Assault in the vicinity of Thiepval by the Ulster division-1st July 1916. The 11th Royal Irish Rifles, moving forward from the A line of trenches, and moving forward to attack the B line of trenches, the attacking infantry are preceded by Bombers - seen carryng grenades in green canvas buckets - who are engaged in throwing grenades in anticipation of the rifle company assault on the enemy trenches; an activity barely changed since the days of Marlborough. The rifle companies are armed with the Lee Enfield SMLE - a superb rifle, though expensive to make. The advance is made with bayonets fixed, as trench clearing involved numerous hand to hand confrontations and bayonet fights. The rifle companies are supported by two Lewis gun teams per company. Note that visible in the painting is a man carrying an orange painted steel marker, painted on one side only. The markers are to to indicate to British artillery observers as to the most forward positions taken by the British advance. N.........

Scorched Earth - The Somme 1916


Scorched Earth - The Somme 1916

At 7.30am on July 1st 1916 the proud and eager young men of Kitcheners Army went over the top for the first time; the Battle of the Somme had begun. By the end of that first terrible day almost 60,000 of their numbers had become casualties, and one of military historys greatest disasters had unfolded before the disbelieving eyes of the Allied High Command. The Battle of the Somme has come to epitomise the horror and waste of the Great War. Featuring newsreel footage and haunting photographs, this DVD tells the tragic story of an army two years in the making - ten minutes in the destroying. It also features atmospheric reconstructions, dramatised eye-witness accounts and computer-generated mapping. Narrated by Terry Molloy.
