Friday 18 May: With Our Backs to the Wall, Victory and Defeat in 1918

presented by Spencer Jones
In March 1918 Germany launched the massive Kaiserschlacht- 'Kaiser's Battle' - offensive in an attempt to win the war in one fell swoop.  The bold attempt came within an ace of success before the Allies spectacularly turned the tide in the summer.  By November, Germany was finally defeated.  This talk tells the incredible story of how the war was won in 1918.
Dr. Spencer Jones is Senior Lecturer in Armed Forces and War Studies,  Department of History Politics and War Studies at the University of Wolverhampton. Members may remember the excellent talk he delivered to the Society on the Battle of the Somme in June 2016.
