The Battle of the Somme tells the story of one of the most iconic and tragic battles in history through its last survivors and through families at home. When the troops went over the top in June 1916 they imagined this was the attack that would end the war. Instead it turned into the most infamous and costly battle of the entire war with enormous casualties on both sides. We tell the stories of the officers and the men, the casualties who sustained life changing injuries and the nurses who treated them. With the help of the tank the Battle of the Somme ended in November 1916. The British and German Empire casualties totalled 400,000 men. They’d advanced just six miles but they had dealt a devastating blow to the German army.
