The battle of the Somme,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Battle Of The Somme [DVD] (DVD)
A remarkable rendering of one off the greatest battles of WWI. About 60.000 men died (on the first day) to no avail, it clearly shows the insanity of war.A very informative DVD.

Please get the facts right - there were not 60 000 British deaths on the first day. There were about 60 000 British casualties on the first day of which about 20 000 were killed. This is tragic and horrifying enough without distortion. Too many people have formed a view of the battle based on this distortion and others.
