From the rear side cover: This highly illustrated book covers the German retreat from the Somme, through the defensive battles of 1917, the Kaiserschlacht (Kaiser's Battle) of early 1918, to the final Allied offensive from August to the end of the War.

Each phase of the decline of the Imperial German Army from early 1917 through to the occupation of their homeland is analysed from the German point of view giving an original angle. The superb collection of mostly unpublished photographs vividly demonstrate life and events both at the front line in the trenches as well as in the rear echelons.

The book thus offers a fascinating pictorial account of the German Army in the latter stages of the war, and is packed full with black and white photographs that give an insight into the men, battles and events of those weeks and months
