Great Book by Osprey Publishing. 48 pages
This third volume covers the troops that fought during the climax of the war on all fronts: the last great battles of attrition in the West (Arras, Messines, 3rd Ypres - Passchendaele/Langemarck - and Cambrai, 1917); the collapse of Russia in the East allowing German reinforcement of the Western Front for a final all-out attempt to break through - the 'Kaiserschlacht' of spring 1918; its failure after early success, and the retreat and eventual Armistice; and operations in Italy, the Balkans, and in support of Turkey in the Middle East. Uniform changes reflect the introduction of new tactics and weapons and new types of troops, for example tanks and assault battalions.
