This guide describes the operations which took place in Picardy in 1918. The first thirty odd pages are devoted to the German offensive of March/April: German strategy and tactics, comparison of opposing forces and the results achieved. Then follows an account of the Franco-British offensive that opened on 8 August, the offensive that marked the beginning of the end for Germany. The narrative here takes the story up to the end of September and the Allied attacks on the outposts of the Hindenburg Line. The battlefield tour heads southeast from Amiens, down into the French sector to Compiegne, taking in Montdidier and other towns and villages that were fought over. There are plenty of maps throughout, explaining the various actions, and a good lot of photos depicting pre-war and wartime scenes.
