Dead soldiers lying on a roadside in northern France, probably during the Battle of the Somme. In the background, two dead horses lie next to an abandoned artillery limber (gun carriage). The Battle of the Somme was the second major battle of 1916, causing huge numbers of casualties. The British and French armies tried to break through the German defences in the valley of the river Somme. Photograph from the Daily Herald Archive, a collection of over three million photographs. The archive holds work of international, national and local importance by both staff and agency photographers.
