Depleted, weary and all too aware of an incoming wave of fresh American troops, the Spring Offensive of 1918 was the German’s one final roll of the dice in trying to push for a victory. Like battering against a rotten wooden door, the Germans initially made some really good progress and it looked like the fate of the war might have been decided. However, the German supply trains could not keep up with the fast paced nature of the assault and the Allies were allowed to dig in and defend their positions. In total, over the spring offensive, there was over 1.5 million casualties.
