The Battle of Amiens has been credited as the moment the tide finally turned conclusively in favor of the allies during World War I; it was also called the “Blackest Day of the German Army” by the commander of the German troops.
The war had been a stalemate on its Western Front since late 1914, but the German High Command made a fateful decision a few years later: restart Unrestricted Submarine Warfare. This bought the United States into the war, and Germany found itself facing millions of fresh troops arriving to tilt the balance in their war of attrition.
The presentation covers the following:
