The Great War: 1918 - Germany's Last Gamble

Using new 'Storm Trooper' tactics, the Germans launched attacks against the British with devastating results. In just three weeks the Allies lost 400,000 men. Completely overwhelmed, General Haig issued his famous 'Backs to the Wall' message to the troops. However, the lack of resources caused by naval blockades and the first appearance of 'Spanish Influenza' meant that the German forces halted.
