From 9 April to 16 May 1917, British, Canadian, South African, New Zealand, Newfoundland and Australian troops attacked German defenses near the French city of Arras on the Western Front. There were major gains on the first day, followed by stalemate. The battle cost nearly 160,000 British casualties and about 125,000 German casualties.
