The Emperor’s Battle - The Last German Offensive

Date: 7th April, 2018
Times: 6:30pm-8:30pm
Tickets: £10
Booking: Essential - Click below or call 01284 758000
Venue: Moyse's Hall Museum

Moyse’s Hall Museum, Bury St Edmunds presents a talk assessing the 1918 offensive which nearly resulted in German victory.

With the Germans facing the entry of America into the Great War with its wealth of manpower and material in support of the French and British Allies, the German High Command recognised they faced a race against time. Hesitation would mean the loss of possibly their only chance to seize the opportunity and advance, utilising the Troops released from the Russian front.

The resultant Gamble of the 1918 caused a series of clashes which caused the Allies to lose ground with heavy casualties on both sides, and it would prove to be a hard fought, desperate; and costly Gamble that very nearly paid off.
