In the summer of 1916 an idea called the Big Push was thought of. This was to happen at a place on the Front called Somme. The Generals thought that by shelling the Germans non-stop for days and nights their defenses would be weakened. Then the British soldiers would be able to take over their trenches in a big attack.
