In February the Germans began their assault on the forts at Verdun in a battle of attrition that would last until December. In the East the Russians launched the Brusilov Offensive to try and relieve the pressure on the French. Although the Russians ultimately failed to make any gains it did draw German divisions away from the Western Front. Meanwhile, the British launched a new offensive at the Somme with terrible loss of life for little or no gain. At sea the dreadnoughts of the Royal Navy and German High Seas Fleet clashed at Jutland in the wars one substantial sea battle. The outcome, however, was inconclusive and although the British lost more ships and men, the Germans retreated back to port never to put to sea in strength again.
