The First World War

Series 1 - 9. Germany's Last Gamble

About this programme

9/10. The penultimate episode explores Germany's bid to end the conflict by launching a massive offensive on the Western Front, masterminded by General Erich Ludendorff. Within days the British Fifth Army was in retreat, Paris was under shellfire and defeat seemed inevitable. However, the plan ran out of steam as supplies and strategic options dried up and German troops became war-weary, hungry and demoralised.
