Probably the Battle of the Somme. The battle was planned by British Commander in Chief, Sir Douglas Haig. He decided they would attack the Germans with an eight-day preliminary bombardment. A preliminary bombardment was when an army would bombard enemy defenses with all available heavy artillery. Haig thought that it would destroy all forward German defenses, allowing the attacking British troops to walk across No Man's Land and take possession of the German front lines from the German troops, who would be dead or injured from the attack. But the artillery failed to destroy either the German front line barbed wire or the strong concrete bunkers the Germans had built. Many of the British munitions had turned out to be badly constructed and ineffective, and so most of them did not go off. The Germans had effective shelter in the bunkers, and most of them were completely unharmed by the attack. For the British, the battle was a complete failure. This battle was important in the outcome of the war, because it killed 58,000 British troops - one third of them had been killed, even though the attack was their plan. However, this didn't result in the Germans winning the war.

Most of the battles of World War One took place on the western front. They took place inside of France and Belgium. Not a single battle took place in Germany.
