5.0 out of 5 stars The Battle That Changed the War, 9 Aug. 2002
This review is from: The Kaiser's Battle (Penguin Classic Military History) (Paperback)
I first read this book some years ago and it stands alongside Martin MIddlebrook's other outstanding works. It covers the actions of one day, March 21 1918, when German General Ludendorff ordered the biggest offensive ever seen on the Western Front at that time. Deliberatly attacking the weakest stretch of the Western Front manned by General Sir Hubert Gough's Fifth Army, the Germans advanced across the old Somme battlefield in six days which had taken the Allies four and a half months in 1916. The battle also doomed the German Army, because it sustained casualties it could ill-afford. From that point it was in permanent retreat until the Armistice of November 1918. Overall, its an interesting read. Based on accounts from British and German soldiers who survived the battles of 1918, it is also a testament to their courage and devotion to duty during those terrible months on the Western Front.
