The Explorers' Club, № DXVII

Operation AXIOM: The World War—The Battle of the Somme, Part VI
26 September-11 November 1916: The Battles of Thiepval Ridge (26-28 September), Le Transloy, & the Ancre Heights (both 1 October-11 November)—The Anglo-French & Imperial offensives, which never achieved the desired strategic breakthrough but steadily gained ground, were slowed by adverse weather & renewed German defensive vigor; trenches, tanks, gas, & aeroplanes all featured.

Lest we forget.

Commentary: Truly, truly, lest we forget.
