Sorry, Zap...there may have been fighting at the Somme prior to the great battle known as the Somme Offensive, but that occurred during the late summer of 1916. Almost 20,000 British soldiers were killed in the first day of fighting. The best account I've read about the bloody horror of the War to End Wars is "Goodbye to All That," by Robert Graves.

I beg your pardon, but the battle at the Somme started in 1914.
