Britain’s Fourth Army, under Gen. Sir Henry Rawlinson, was the force that bore much of the brunt of the campaign that this official history calls ‘the Hundred Days’ – the great counter attack beginning on August 8th 1918 which finally forced the German command to sue for the Armistice that came into effect on November 11th, ending the Great War in the west. Germany’s commander Gen. Paul von Hindenburg called August 8th ‘the black day of the German army in this war’ and it was indeed the beginning of the end. The high tide of Ludendorff’s Spring Offensives had been halted just before the vital cathedral city and road and rail junction of Amiens, and on August 8th, spearheaded by Australian troops and a strong force of tanks, the Allies hit back.
