 Battle of Flers-Courcelette - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Battle of Flers-Courcelette, which began on 15 September 1916 and lasted for one week, was the third and last of the large-scale offensives mounted by the British Army during the Battle of the Somme.
The battle is significant for the first use of the tank in warfare and expectations were high that it would prove a decisive weapon.
Like the earlier offensives of 1 July (Battle of Albert) and 14 July (Battle of Bazentin Ridge), Haig had hoped to achieve a breakthrough of the German defences, enabling a return to mobile warfare.

Albert Odyssey's soundtrack is one of the most riveting, memorable, and haunting that I have ever heard.
With such an incredible soundtrack and well-done story, I would've liked for Albert Odyssey to have been something a lot more than what it is, but perhaps such thinking is in vain: I doubt Sunsoft had any real ambitions for this title outside of "make an RPG with a great soundtrack and pretty battle animations".

Although writers often summarise the fighting as though it was one battle, the first day of the Somme (sometimes called the 'Battle of Albert') involved fighting along a front of 29 kilometres.
Moreover, when you study the different engagements individually, you see that the generally-accepted view of the first day of the battle has been oversimplified and - to a degree - misrepresented.
Not all the Generals were careless of the lives of their soldiers, many taking decisions contrary to their orders so they could stop the slaughter of their men.
