'The Battle of Third Ypres' a talk given by Professor John Derry
09 Jun


Prof. John Derry will be giving a talk on Third Ypres.

 

The strategic objectives of the Ypres salient were sounder than those of the Somme a year earlier and the British did well in three of the campaign’s five phases. Ludendorff later said that he was dreading the possible resumption of a British offensive in Flanders, and this was one reason for the ‘gambler’s throw’ of the German Offensive in March 1918.
