Battle of Somme Hannah walker
Iraqi Aftermath • She was only six! The woman criedCradling her daughter as she diedThe soldier blank could not composeAs up to her feet the woman rose • I spit on you and all your kinWhat is this hell you have us in?Is this freedom? Is this why you fight?How many more children, die tonight? • Mama I know your angry and it breaks my heartThis is not my War, this is just my partAfter the bombings I come to collateSuccess of the mission, or mistakes that we make • She points to the little lifeless pileThere's your mistake, one dead childOne more tomorrow, maybe two or threeIf that is your freedom, don't liberate me Rhyme- Fight and tonight Repetition; Mistake
In The Battle Of Somme 58,000 English troops were killed on the first day.
This amount remains the record of most killed on the first day of a battle.
The German’s barbed wire and the English’s poor weapons made the attack go horribly wrong.
