The year 1916 long will be remembered as the beginning of modern mass-death warfare where tanks and other industrial products quickly overran traditional troop formations. A new analysis of the notorious Battle of the Somme, using archives from both sides not previously available, finds some positive outcomes: the battle may have hurt the Germans even more than the British, and it taught an inexperienced British army the hard way how to fight a modern war.
