The Battle of the Somme in 1916 had been planned as a joint offensive with the French but the titanic struggle at Verdun gradually stripped away French divisions leaving the Somme as a predominantly British battle. It was one in which Kitchener's New Armies would play an important part, with the citizen soldiers essentially learning on the job - at a terrible cost in blood.
