German troop movements, 1916-1917

When - 1916, into 1917

Where - France.

Searched - 'Somme Offensive', 'Battle of Verdun'', 'German casualties in Somme/Verdun' (I searched both), 'German units at Verdun/Somme' (again, both)

Question - It's a silly question and I'm almost certainly going to find an answer using a different Google search string which I haven't thought of yet, but I have a character who fights with the imperial German army at Verdun in 1916. When the Somme offensive - which as far as I understand was meant specifically to draw the Germans away from Verdun - begins, my character is sent there instead.

I can't find anything to tell me which units might have been present at both Verdun AND the Somme. Can anyone help, or at least point me in the right direction so I can try a different search term?
