Title 1918: how the first world war was won
Publisher/Date : Hardie Grant Books, 2018
Summary Note The war in 1918 changed character radically, and nowhere more so than on the Western Front. Over three years of stalemate, what had effectively become siege warfare conducted along a line of trenches from Switzerland to the sea was ‘unlocked’ by the German March 1918 offensive. Suddenly it was a war of movement again for the first time since November 1914. After some desperate fighting the Allies stemmed the tide of the German advance, and began the counter-offensive. This book gives the detailed account of the final year of the First World War. Every battle is examined and retold from a new, refreshing perspective, it wasn’t just the British forces on the final push, they were accompanied by new American troops, Canadian reinforcements, and masterminded by the tactical command of French General Ferdinand Foch. This new, incredibly illustrated book tells the story of those final violent pushes to the end of the war in 1918.
Subject World War, 1914-1918 Western Front.
