Battle of the Somme 1916 Most of this is archival footage shot just before the disastrous first day at the Battle Of the Somme. On that fateful day (July 1, 1916) the British Army suffered about 50,000 casualties; approximately 20,000 were fatalities. Many of the young men you see in the trenches were mowed down by German machine gun fire.

The Newfoundland Regiment lost 90 percent of its men that day. The suicidal attacks on the Somme battlefields best symbolizes the senseless slaughter on the Western Front.
