Hundred Days The campaign that ended World War I by Nick Lloyd Basic Books 2014 Remarkable The Hundred Days from the middle of July 1918 through the beginning of November are the days when the British French and eventually the Americans having held off Ludendorff s final spring huge peace offensive finally turned the tide began advancing and broke the German army Lloyd uses every resource archives letters diaries books official accounts etc to describe how the Entente finally named a single generalissimo to coordinate all the armies Foch who planned the series of attacks that one after the other destroyed the Germans ability to resist His account goes from the highest strategic councils to the utter brutality and sualor of the combat I had no idea how much gas they used the Germans than the Allies I will never think of the French as surrender monkeys they bore the absolute brunt of the fighting and the war was almost entirely on their territory Lloyd explains that the Allies finally learned how to fight the Germans not with huge days long artillery bombardments that could be sheltered from and which told the Germans exactly where the attack would come but from secret carefully hidden buildups just behind the lines complete with deception and camouflage followed by sudden overwhelming terrible artillery bombardments that the troops finally knew how to follow behind They used tanks to excellent effect they controlled the air The Germans resisted the high command struggled and refused to acknowledge their losses and their deteriorating situation until the army itself began to crumble and rebel and desert and refuse to fight Lloyd says the reason the American divisions were so huge because they didn t have enough experience staff officers There was the culture clash the Brits were almost offended by the Americans informality and offhandedness It took a while for the Americans to learn how to fight At first they tried the old fashioned ways that didn t work mass attacks across the front which were slaughtered But they learned fast did a magnificent job a St Mihiel Casualties on all sides were enormous some of the highest of the war And there is no doubt that the Germans were beaten They had run out of men out of food out of euipment The Allies were driving them Hitler was wrong The Germans lost The book has excellent maps and a good bunch of photos
