In the spring of 1918 the German army launched a series of devastating offensives against the French and British lines on the Western Front. Drawing on the dramatic personal accounts of men who were there—both commanders and ordinary grunts—the narrative brings to life the sheer suspense of waiting for the German attack, the desperate turmoil of the retreat, and the nail-biting turning of the tide that brought an end to the war. This history is unparalleled in its scope and depth.

"This account of the events of 1918 is the first major reappraisal of the end of the war for more than twenty years, and describes what is in some respects a forgotten chapter in history.The soldiers who returned to Britain in November 1918 were not the martyrs or victims of popular memory - they were a victorious army, and were greeted as heroes.their generals too, often demonized by posterity, were at the time lionized for their efficient handling of the war's vital endgame."--BOOK JACKET.
