Peter Hart: The Last Battle: Endgame on the Western Front
Tue 20 Nov / Quarterhouse
By August 1918, the outcome of the Great War was not in doubt: the Allies would win. But what was unclear was how this defeat would play out - would the Germans hold on, prolonging the fighting deep into 1919, with the loss of hundreds of thousands more young lives, or could the war be won in 1918? Peter Hart brings to life the dramatic final weeks of the war, as men fought to secure victory, with survival seemingly only days or hours away.
Peter Hart is the oral historian at the Imperial War Music and has written several titles on the First World War. His latest books for Profile are Gallipoli, The Great War and Voices from the Front.
