Airfix Catalogue description:

The summer of 2016 will mark the Centenary of one of the bloodiest battles in the history of warfare, the Battle of the Somme. Intended to achieve a decisive breakthrough for Allied Forces, the Somme saw the introduction of the first tanks to the Western Front and also the first concerted struggle for air supremacy above the battlefield. Whilst men in the trenches of the Somme battlefield were fighting and dying in their thousands, an equally frenetic battle was being contested in the skies above them, by a relatively small number of opposing aviators.


First Issued: 2016
