Operation AXIOM: The World War—The Battle of the Somme, Part III
14-17 July 1916: The Battle of Bazentin Ridge—The earlier Franco-British attacks had forced the Germans from their primary defensive lines; from their secondary lines, the Germans were on the back foot against renewed attacks, unable to mass & coordinate artillery fire & harassed by Entente air power; reinforcements were scarce due to Verdun in the West & the Brusilov Offensive in the East.

Lest we forget.
