British soldiers with wounded German prisoners, La Boisselle, 3 July 1916

Photograph, World War One, Western Front (1914-1918), 1916.

La Boisselle on the Somme had originally been an objective for capture on 1 July 1916, but fierce German resistance meant that the ruined village was not captured until 5 July. This was after several attacks that all resulted in heavy losses.

From an album of 24 official photographs.
