Quagmire World War One - Mud on the Somme. Men actually drowned in the mud at the Battle of the Somme in 1916."We live in a world of Somme mud. We sleep in it, work in it, fight in it, wade in it and many of us die in it. We see it, feel it, eat it and curse it, but we can't escape it, not even by dying." Quote by Australian Private Edward Lynch
