See how They Ran
Forfatteren, der er Senior Executive ved et Fleet Street nyhedsmagasin, har undersøgt hvad der egentlig skete i 1918. Han har benyttet de samme metoder som en journalist benytter i forbindelse med research af et emnt. Resultatet er denne bog, om den tyske offensiv (the Kaiserschlacht) den 21 marts 1918, som i løbet af 10 dage førte til at den engelske 5. og 3. Army måtte trækkes sig tilbage fra de områder som var erobret i løbet af 1916 og 1917.
