After the bloodbaths at Verdun and the Somme, the Allied high command elected to move forward with 2 offensives in 1917. The main assault was to be led by General Robert Nivelle's French troops at Chemin des Dames which he believed could end the war in 48 hours.

To support the French effort, the British Expeditionary Force planned a push in the Vimy-Arras sector of the front. Scheduled to start a week earlier, it was hoped that the British attack would draw troops away from Nivelle's front. Led by Field Marshall Douglas Haig, the BEF began making elaborate preparations for the assault.

The Battle of Arras is generally considered a British victory due to the capture of Vimy Ridge and other territorial gains, however it did little to alter the strategic situation on the Western Front. Following the battle, the Germans built new defensive positions and a stalemate resumed.

The presentation covers the following:
