I'm reading rather a good book on the latter part of WW1.

The 8th of August 1918 was described by Ludendorff as "the black day of the German Army in the history of the war". Indeed, the victory at the battle of Amiens by British, Australian and Canadian forces and the promise of huge numbers of Americans entering the fray brought about the Armistice and German capitulation.

All armies, no matter how good, can have their "Black Day". The British have had their share. Indeed, you can make a case for many British wars beginning disastrously before ending in victory.

So, to be a "Black Day" doesn't mean eventual defeat but a significant military disaster.
