Publisher's summary

In every sense, 1918 was the climactic year of the Great War on the Western Front. The battles fought during that spring dwarfed those at the Somme and at Passchendaele.The casualties on both sides were unprecedented, and the weapons and tactics used were the culmination of four years' bloody experience.

This epic account of the events of 1918 is the first major reappraisal of the end of the war for more than 20 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.

As the oral historian at the Imperial War Museum, Peter Hart has had unprecedented access to material never before seen or heard. He uses this vast wealth of sources to describe the entire course of the year, at all levels of command, from the terrifying German attacks in the spring to the victorious parades after the Armistice was signed. As a chronicle of the Great War's brutal climax it is unparalleled in its scope and depth.
