Book Description

The third in a trilogy of books, the others being Cambrai -The Right Hook and Bourlon Wood by the same authors covering the battle for Cambrai in November 1917. It covers the defense against the German counter strike, the defense of the Flesquieres Salient against the Kaiserschlact in March 1918 and its recapture in Sept/Oct 1918 all key elements in great Allied advance to victory.

This book and guide to the Battle for Flesquieres Ridge tells of the onslaught by 470 tanks and infantry battalions which smashed through the Hindenburg line to the great surprise of the Germans who thought it invincible. So successful was the initial assault that for the first time in the war church bells rang out and the face of land warfare was changed forever. The story illustrates the indomitable spirit of British infantry who in spite of being outnumbered and outgunned, and frustrated by political interference, still managed to thwart Ludendorff's last drive for the Channel Ports. They were then in a position to force him back eastwards, breaking through the reinforced Hindenburg Line once again before final victory in November 1918.

Needed this book for a forthcoming trip and it will greatly add to my tour. The authors, acknowledged experts, write straightforwardly and offer good advice on specific tours in the area.

The book gives a clear overview of the action with good maps and many references to the work of specific units. I wish i had read the book before I walked the battlefield.

5.0 out of 5 stars THE FINAL FACET OF THE BATTLE OF CAMBRAI 16 Sept. 2012
By P. A. Panozzo - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Pen and Sword Publishing produces handsome paperbacks and the Battleground Europe series is an example of an attractive, concise and yet helpful guidebook. This title Flesquieres: Hindenburg Line is the third and last installment of a series of guidebooks pertaining to the Battle of Cambrai and future actions in the area of Flesquieres Ridge. The first two volumes should be a required purchase and study before examining this title. Here are the links to the other two volumes: Cambrai: Hindenburg Line (Battleground Europe. Hindenburg Line) (R.A. Forczyk has an extensive critical review) and Bourlon Wood: Hindenburg Line (Battleground Europe). These guidebooks are great for visiting these World War One battlefields and, if you cannot visit them,(like me!) they are priceless! Many English subjects visit the WWI battlefields and cemeteries and they are the principal audience of these guidebooks but any history buff with an interest in WWI will find them fascinating and valuable! The authors Jack Horsfall, Nigel Cave, and Philippe Gorcynski are uniquely qualified historians. Horsfall and Cave have extensively studied the Battle of Cambrai and it's area and walked and toured the battlefields. Philippe Gorczynski is a local Frenchman extremely knowledgeable of the area and it's history. As with other guidebooks in the Battleground series, there are great maps, suggested walking/driving tours, and even some travel information on accommodations, black and white photos of the battle and solid background history to add context. Other books that I recommend: Ironclads of Cambrai: The First Great Tank Battle and Cambrai 1917: The birth of armoured warfare (Campaign)
