|Description

The summer of 2016 marks the Centenary of one of the bloodiest battles in
the history of warfare; the Battle of the Somme. Also known as the Somme
Offensive it started on July 1st 1916 and ran until November 18th and was
intended to achieve a decisive breakthrough for Allied Forces against the
German frontline on the Western Front in France. Fought on both sides of
the River Somme across an 18 mile stretch of frontline trenches, the battle
saw the introduction of the first tanks to the Western Front and also the
first concerted struggle for supremacy in the air above the battle field.

Whilst men in the trenches were fighting and dying in their thousands, an
equally frenetic battle was being contested in the skies above them by a
relatively small number of opposing aviators. Aerial reconnaissance played
an enormously important part in the battle with aircraft such as the BE2c
photographing the German trenches but it was a hazardous undertaking with
new German ‘scouts’ like the Fokker Eindecker constantly trying to shoot
them down. Later in the battle the British used their new ‘tanks’ for the
first time to try to break the deadlock. Initially, success was limited due
to unreliability and the crew’s inexperience but later they made a useful
contribution to the Allies modest advance.

By the end of the Somme Offensive over a million men from both sides had
been killed or wounded but the French and British forces had penetrated
just 6 miles into German held territory.
