Abstract

On the eleventh hour of the eleventh day in November 1918, the guns of the Western Front fell silent.

The Armistice, which brought the Great War to an end, marked a seminal moment in modern European history. Beginning at the heralded turning-point on the Marne in July 1918, Hundred Days traces the epic narrative of the next four months, which saw some of the bloodiest battles of the war. Casualties were nothing short of catastrophic - over 700,000 Allied soldiers died or were wounded while the Germans lost another 785,000 men. Nick Lloyd reveals reveals how the Allies - British, French, American and Commonwealth - managed to beat the German Army, by now crippled by indiscipline and ravaged by influenza, and force her leaders to seek peace.
