"In the late summer of 1918, after four long years of senseless, stagnant fighting, the Western Front erupted. The bitter four-month struggle that ensued-- known as the Hundred Days Campaign-- saw some of the bloodiest and most ferocious combat of the Great War, as the Allies grimly worked to break the stalemate in the west and end the conflict that had decimated Europe. In Hundred Days, military historian Nick Lloyd leads readers into the endgame of World War I, showing how the timely arrival of American men and materiel-- as well as the bravery of French, British, and Commonwealth soldiers-- helped to turn the tide on the Western Front. Many of these battle-hardened troops had endured years of terror in the trenches, clinging to their resolve through poison-gas attacks and fruitless assaults across no man's land. Finally, in July 1918, they and their American allies did the impossible-- they returned movement to the Western theater. Using surprise attacks, innovative artillery tactics, and swarms of tanks and aircraft, they pushed the Germans out of their trenches and forced them back to their final bastion: the Hindenburg Line, a formidable network of dugouts, barbed wire, and pillboxes. After a massive assault, the Allies broke through, racing toward the Rhine and forcing Kaiser Wilhelm II to sue for peace" --… (mais)

I've probably read too much about the Great War to be part of the target audience for this book, but Lloyd hooked me with his introduction of how this campaign affected his family. So if you're looking for a popular account of how the Entente pummeled the Second Reich into submission you could do a good deal worse. If nothing else Lloyd does a fine job of showing how the cut and thrust of the operational side of the war impacted policy making; particularly from the German perspective. As for what I'd dispute about the book, you can count Lloyd among those who believe that it would have been better in the long run if the Entente had actually broken into Germany and confirm the battlefield defeat they had inflicted, even if the war had gone on into 1919. This was not really a practical prospect, for reasons Lloyd himself outlines. ( )
