High Wood

From Simple English Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

High Wood (French: Bois des Fourcaux) is a small forest near Bazentin le Petit in the Somme département of northern France. The Battle of the Somme took place there. The French name for the wood was Bois des Foureaux (now called Bois des Fourcaux) but to the British who fought there, it was known as High Wood.
