The Battle of Amiens

A new page has been added to the website . . . . . .

The Battle of Amiens, also known as the Third Battle of Picardy was the opening phase of the Allied offensive which began on 8 August 1918, later known as the Hundred Day Offensive, that ultimately led to the end of the First World War.

Allied forces advanced over 7 miles on the first day, one of the greatest advances of the war, with General Henry Rawlinson’s British 4th Army (with 9 of its 19 divisions supplied by the fast moving Australian Corp of Lt General John Monash and the Canadian Corps of Lt. General Arthur Currie) playing the decisive role.
