A Day of Horror

Ninety years ago today, July 1, 1916, a combination of the French, British, Canadian, and Russian armies launched an attack against the Germans at the Somme.

By the time the battle was over, 5 months later, over 1,000,000 members of all armies were dead.

On this day alone England lost 20,000 people.

Only humans, and human institutions could act so cruel, in such as bloodthirsty manner as did the Generals in World War I. It's a lesson to remember today about Generals and politicians.
