The Western Front series continues with this tribute to the soldiers who fought in the Battle of Amiens, which saw Allied troops break through German lines and gain over 24 kilometres of occupied territory.
This was a vital victory for the Allies and a significant action for Australia during the First World War.
In March 1918, Germany launched a series of offensives aimed at driving the British back along the front. Their attempt to take the strategic town of Amiens with its railway junction was halted by Australian and British troops at Villers-Bretonneux.
The Allies went on the offensive, early in the morning of 8 August. Led by combined Australian and Canadian forces, the Allies launched a surprise attack on German positions south of the Somme River. In just over three hours, they overran the enemy front lines, and gained a total of 24 kilometres of German-occupied territory in a single day.
The Battle of Amiens, ‘The black day of the German army’ is viewed by historians as one of the most important actions fought by Australians during the First World War. This crucial victory ultimately led to the end of fighting on the Western Front.
