A massively illustrated account of a joint British-Canadian-French assault in World War I. Previous books on the 1917 offensives have concentrated on a single sector of the front: the British at Arras, the Canadians at Vimy, or the French at Chemin des Dames. However, the offensive was truly an Allied effort, an aspect fully covered by the author.

Buffetaut's detailed narrative is supported by an extraordinary collection of 300 rare or hitherto unpublished photographs from government archives and private collections.
