Hundred Days Offensive (10/10)

List item

The true beginning of the end of World War One, the Hundred Days Offensive was a series of skirmishes and battles that resulted from the German failure to make a substantial breakthrough in their Spring Offensive of 1918. The ultimate counter attack that marked the end of trench warfare, the Allies, with the help of fresh American troops, pushed the Germans back along the Hindenburg Line and triggered calls for peace. Easily the most destructive offensive of the war, the casualty list rose to nearly two million on both sides.
