Our brand new Sabaton History episode, entitled “1916 Pt. 3 – The Battle of the Somme”, is officially available on our Sabaton History channel on YouTube.
1916 was known even to soldiers of the Great War as “The Year of Battles”, and the largest of the battles fought on the Western front during WW1 was The Battle of the Somme. Over 4.5 months from summer to autumn, more than three million men fought in the battle and over a million were killed or wounded. And what did it achieve?
If you’re history buffs, which we know you are, you’re going to want to watch this!
