Overview
-

Few pivotal years in history are less understood than that of 1918. It was a momentous period, which began with Germany's desperate gamble to win the Great War through a sequence of offensives on the Western Front. Ian Passingham's graphic new study draws on a wide range of original German, British and French sources, and it features previously unpublished eyewitness accounts and photographs.

He boldly reassesses German military doctrine, the strategic thinking behind the offensives and the effectiveness of the storm troop tactics used. He also considers how the poor state of German military morale and the privations and unrest of the German people contributed to the army's defeat.
