In mid-summer 1916, the 56th (London) Division of the British Army carried out an attack from Hébuterne in an attempt to capture Gommecourt as a part of the Battle of the Somme offensive, which failed with severe losses.By the war's end, the village was a complete wreck due to the violence to which it had been subject during its front line career, and it had to be completely re-built in the 1920s.
