Summary

By August 1918 the "British" Sector of the Western Front should really have been called the "English-speaking" Sector. An exhausted Great Britain was down to its last reserves and most of the British command's offensive capabilities lay with Canadian, Australian and New Zealand troops, and the newly-arriving Americans.

Knowing that the Germans were equally exhausted, British commander Sir Douglas Haig pressed for a last offensive before fresh German troops from the East could arrive. The British advance lay through the Somme region, scene of many tragic losses over the past four years. This tense narrative of World War I's last battle between exhausted opponents has all the detail of other Battleground Europe books, backed up by numerous illustrations and maps, and a guide to the region as it is today.
