This publication is described as a tactical study based on the Action of 2nd Brigade, R.F.A (6th Division) during the German Offensive, 1918; the 100 Days’ Battle; and the Battle of Cambrai, 1917. It contains three Articles published in the Royal Artillery Journal between 1919 and 1923, which had as one object to place on record a set of actual experiences which could provide a framework on which to consider the practical effect of the aeroplane, the tank and chemical warfare on field artillery in battle and to see what lessons might be learned. A second object was to provide a souvenir of great days of the past for the officers and men who participated in the events described. The three Articles were entitled : A Field Artillery Group in Retreat (March/April 1918); A Field Artillery Group in the General Advance (September/October 1918), and A Field Artillery Group in the Surprise (Cambrai November 1917).
