Summary

Presenting the Allied and German experience of war - both military and on a personal level - Victory on the Western Front is an immensely readable, visually striking account of the pivotal final stages of World War I, when two very different concepts went head-to-head on the battlefield. The Germans gambled on winning on the Western Front through the sophisticated use of artillery and new infantry tactics, whereas the Allies calculated that victory lay in the application of a balanced combination of infantry, artillery, AFVs and aircraft. The efforts of both sides were dogged by error, misunderstanding, uncertainty and mistrust. This fully illustrated book is the story of the search for victory - on both sides of the lines - and of the valour and steadfastness of the fighting men tasked with delivering it.
