THE OCCUPATION OF THE RHINELAND 1918-1929 OFFICIAL HISTORY OF THE GREAT WAR.

Official history of Britain’s occupation of the Rhineland after the 1918 Armistice . Originally published in a restricted edition of 100 copies – ironically in 1945, as another British occupation of Germany was beginning – this final volume of the official history of the Great War covers in great detail the ten-year occupation of the area of the Rhineland, centred on the cities of Aachan and Cologne. It describes how, under the terms of the Armistice, the British armies moved slowly forward from the line they had reached at the Armistice on November 11th 1918 to occupy and administer the area – a task that continued for the next decade.
