to Victory: August - November 1918
The year 1918
was the final phase of fighting on the Western Front,
with the German offensives on the Somme in March, in
Flanders in April and on the Chemin des Dames in May.
This catastrophic period for the Allies nearly saw a
German victory, but the German offensives ended with the
same stalemate, and huge losses on the German side.
This part of
the site will look at the Battlefields of the Last
Hundred Days; 8th August - 11th November 1918. From
the Breakout on the Somme, to the smashing of the
Hindenburg Line, the crossing of the Sambre Canal and
the final operations around Mons. It will also look at
some of the sites connected with the American
Expeditionary Force (AEF) in 1918.
growth of GPS technology in visiting Great War
Battlefields, such as the Linesman
project, I have added GPS locations for all the places
in this section of the site.
