This year Anglia is offering a fully-guided 2-day tour which will give your students a chance to look beyond the stalemate of trench warfare and to see how, over the final 12 months of the Great War, the nature of the fighting on the Western Front changed.
Starting with mine warfare on the Messines Ridge in 1917, through the new German tactics in defence at the end of that year and new offensive tactics at the start of the next, to the development of All Arms warfare and the final Allied advance of Autumn 1918.
This tour will also give your students an opportunity to handle equipment and weaponry and a chance to take part in the daily Last Post under the Menin Gate.
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:
