In a welcome return to the branch, Michael will be reviewing his contribution to The Darkest Year: The British Army on the Western Front 1917 edited by Spencer Jones and which deals with a highly successful German trench raid at Loos in January 1917.

Their success stemmed from the detailed planning, preparation and innovative deception methods undertaken by the Germans
