Recommended Posts

On the 1st of July 1916, the first Battle of the Somme began. The battle itself was supposed to have started on the 29th of June 1916 but rain forced a delay of the battle and it began instead on the 1st of July

Weather chart for 1st of July 1916


It was the battle with the greatest recorded number of military casualties with a total of 1,043,896: Allied 623,907; 419,989 Germans.

The sound of the barrages could be heard on Hampstead Heath in London

Here's a website which has what the weather conditions were like for each day of the battle
