The Somme was an area in France that went through extensive fighting for much of World War I.
- You may be looking for World War I battle that happened in the area in 1916.
John Jarrow and Roger Gleave each fought in the Somme. Jarrow was killed there in 1917. Fitz Kreiner tried to stir memories of the battle within Gleave, after he was taken as a host by wasps affected by an alien device. (PROSE: Eater of Wasps)
Do you remember what the Somme looked like afterwards? All churned‐up mud, without a single tree or building left standing? Blasted and blasted until there was nothing but... well, desolation.
Behind the scenes Edit
