The Battle of the Somme also known as the Somme Offensive, took place during the First World War between 1 July and 14 November 1916 in the Somme department of France. The battle consisted of an offensive by several armies aside from French ones against the German Army, which, since invading France in August 1914, had occupied large areas of that country. The Battle of the Somme was one of the largest battles of the First World War; by the time fighting had petered out in late autumn 1916 the forces involved had suffered more than 1 million casualties, making it one of the bloodiest military operations ever recorded.
