Operation AXIOM: The World War—The Battle of the Somme, Part IV
14 July-3 September 1916: The Battle of Delville Wood—British & Imperial forces, including the first deployment of South Africans to the Western Front, seized the Delville Wood, forming a salient in the German lines that could be used to launch further offensives, followed by seven weeks of close combat, with constant small-unit attacks & counterattacks amidst persistent rain & endless mud.

Lest we forget.
