"Between the 7th and 29th of April 1918, the Fourth Battle of Ypres also known as the Battle of the Lys took place on the Western Front. The First World War had been ongoing for almost four years, and German forces hoped to finally push the British back to the sea. This would involve punching past the British First Army, driving the Second Army towards the north, and surging on towards the English Channel.


With America now in the war, Germany knew that US troop numbers in Europe would only increase from now on. In an effort to beat the Allies back before the Americans could turn the tide of the conflict, Germany launched their offensive.

As the Fourth Battle of Ypres raged on, it looked as though the German troops might be successful too. Things were looking grim for the British forces, and when their pleas for reinforcements were initially denied, Field Marshal Haig issued his famous order, "With our backs to the wall, and believing in the justice of our cause, each of us must fight on to the end."…"

A lovely animation which will have entailed significant effort.

The representation of the attack is stylised and should not be taken as an historical view. Attacks were not carried out in waves against the type of defences shown, though this is a commonly held view.
