[edit] Information

At 7.30am on July 1st 1916 the proud and eager young men of Kitchener's Army went "over the top" for the first time; the Battle of the Somme had begun. By the end of that first terrible day almost 60,000 of their numbers had become casualties, and one of military history's greatest disasters had unfolded before the disbelieving eyes of the Allied High Command.

The Battle of the Somme has come to epitomise the horror and waste of the Great War. Featuring newsreel footage and haunting photographs, this tells the tragic story of an army "two years in the making - ten minutes in the destroying". It also features atmospheric reconstructions, dramatised "eye-witness" accounts and computer-generated mapping.
