What were the main failures of the ally forces at the Somme? (pick most correct answer)



A. Joffre and Haig wanted to pusure different ways at defeating the Germans, lack of concentration in their attacks (they were to weak because they were spread out) and the weaponary was in-adequate
B. The weather was un-favourable for ally strategies to be pursued, The Germans had significant more numbers in troops and the ammunition by the ally forces was too weak and ironically made it harder to infiltrate German defenses (barbed wire was tangled)
C. General Joffre died in battle and thus was a significant loss to the ally forces, The German s defeated the French at Verdun and were granted extra troops, and the weapons that the ally forces used were too weak to infiltarte enemey defense
