  • 1. The End of the War
  • 2. German Offensive of 1918
    Entire action took place between March 21 to April 5, 1918
    Germany used new tactics that relied on surprise
    The Germans would use a very short artillery barrage then sneak small groups of soldiers through to weak points in allied lines
    More heavily armed German soldiers would then move up to reinforce their new trenches
  • 3. German Offensive of 1918
    Germany advanced an amazing 60 kilometres
    The front lines moved to less than 120 kilometres of Paris
    Heavy rail guns fired shells on Paris causing citizens to flee
  • 4. End of the Offensive
    The Allies were able to hold the Germans back from making anymore significant gains
    From May to July 1918 the Allies were able to slowly take back much of the land the Germans had gained
    The offensive and the following counter by the Allies meant that the Germans did not have the manpower to mount anymore significant attacks
  • 5. The One Hundred Days Offensive
    The Allies launched several offensives from August 8 to November 11, 1918
    The Battle of Amiens (Aug 8-10), and the Battle of the Somme (Aug 15-29) were two decisive victories for the Allies
    The Germans were forced to retreat to their heavily fortified Hindenburg line
  • 6. Armistice
    Fighting continued until minutes before the armistice at 11:00am on Nov. 11
    The armistice was signed on a railway car in France
