  • Battle of Verdun – The Imperial German Army launched one of the biggest offenses of World War One, mobilizing 1.25 million soldiers in 50 divisions to assault and break the French line at Verdun, France, which was being defended by 1.14 million French soldiers. The fearsome army and aerial assault involved using storm troops for the first time, slinging hand grenades or using flamethrowers to destroy French defenses as opposed to firing their rifles.[82]
  • Italian hospital ship HS Marechiaro was torpedoed and sunk by German submarine SM UC-12 near the Albanian port of Durrës, killing 33 people.[83]
  • To support the morale of French troops defending against the German offensive at Verdun, French fighter pilot Jean Navarre began daily aerobatic flights over the front line in a Nieuport 11 fighter with its fuselage painted in French red, white, and blue.[84]
  • The 59th Australian Battalion was established as part of the expansion of the First Australian Imperial Force.[85]
  • Died: Richard Murphy, American mariner, his boat command exploits were well chronicled in The Fisherman’s Own Book (b. 1838)
