The Battle of the Somme

The Battle of The Somme film

  • 11 November 2016 1:45-3:45pm

The Somme was one of the bloodiest battles of the First World War, resulting in over one million casualties. The Battle of the Somme film took real life footage and turned it into a main feature with mass appeal. It shows images of the first week of the ‘Big Push’, which took place in July 1916. It was a joint offensive of the British and French armies who hoped to break through the German lines and achieve victory on the Western Front. The film remains one of the most watched in British cinema history.
