The Advance to Victory – 1 Day Tour

Tour Introduction

This coming year will mark the centenary of Imperial Germany’s last throw of the dice, the Spring Offensive known as the Kaiserschlacht, the Allied advance which followed and finally after more than four years and the over 16 million civilian and military deaths, the moment the guns finally fell silent.

With visits to Villers-Brentonneux, the Riqueval Bridge and the American Cemetery at Bony, this fascinating 1-day fully-guided tour follows the events of 1918 from the German advance through to the breaking of the Hindenburg Line. Topics covered include the development of All Arms Warfare, the entry of the United States into the Great War, the Treaty of Versailles much more.

Each member of the group will also receive a copy of Anglia’s unique, high quality aide memoire to The Great War on the Western Front. See a selection of images below:
