Master Box 1:35 British Infantry, Somme Battle period, 1916 - Plastic Figure Model Kit #35146

In July 1916 the allied forces of the British and French armies fought a battle with German troops which lasted almost four months. The offensive took place on both sides of the River Somme in France and was the largest battle of WWI in the Western Theatre. Both British and French forces lost over 600 thousand soldiers. German casualties were nearly the same. On the whole, more than one million men were injured or killed which makes the Battle of the Somme the most murderous battle of all time. It was also the battle where tanks were first used.

This model kit was issued in commemoration of the 100th Anniversary of the First World War (1914-1918). It represents British infantrymen preparing for another assault on the Somme battlefield. Includes parts for the assembly of five figures. Glue and paint are not included.
