The Slaughter on the Somme

In this battlecast we cover one of the deadliest battles of the First World War - the battle of the Somme. With its trenches and heavy casualties the Somme represents the very worst of the "Great War". Since the end of the battle many historians, politicians, journalists and armchair generals have argued that the battle was a senseless slaughter engineered by the generals, and though a victory there was not much to show for it. By the end of the research process, I found that I don't exactly agree. Thanks to melhaks for the great artwork!
