The concluding volume of Arthur Conan Doyle’s multi-volume history of the Great War on the western front opens with the tide about to turn in the Allies’ favour after the trauma of the five German Spring offensives which had brought them close to breaking point. In August, the Allies hit back with an attack, spearheaded by tanks and led by Australian troops outside Amiens. From then on it was a story of steady eastward advance as the Hindenburg Line was breached, until after 100 days of fierce fighting the beaten Germans sued for an armistice which came into effect on 11/11/18.
