Battle of the Somme (disambiguation)
Battle of the Somme commonly refers to the major Anglo-French offensive in 1916 during World War I; however, the postwar Battles Nomenclature Committee divided this campaign into a series of battles (listed in the article above). According to official nomenclature, two other offensives during the last year of World War I, 1918, also use this name:
- the German offensive codenamed Operation Michael, known by the British as the First Battle of the Somme (1918)
- the Second Battle of the Somme (1918), the second phase of the final British offensive of the war (the "Hundred Days" offensive)
- The Battle of the Somme (film) is the documentary and propaganda film made by British official cinematographers Geoffrey Malins and John McDowell during World War I about the above 1916 offensive
