BATTLE THAT WON THE WAR : BELLENGLISE Breaching the Hindenburg Line 1918


The Battle of St Quentin Canal involved British Fourth Army (including Australian and U.S. troops) and was the fourth and final attack of Marshal Foch’s coordinated hammer blows against the German line in late September 1918. The Battle of Bellenglise is the name given to the fighting on the right flank of the British line, where British IX Corps had to cross the formidable open canal cutting. It was spearheaded by 46 (North Midland) Division. The book is well-organised, well-written and generously-illustrated and contains first hand accounts of the action.
