In the long history of the British Army, the Battle of the Somme was its bloodiest encounter. Between July 1 and mid-November 1916, 432,000 of its soldiers became casualties – about 3,600 for every day of battle. German casualties were far fewer despite British superiority in the air and in lethal artillery.
