Book Description:

Four years into World War I, millions of soldiers had died or been badly wounded, and neither side could gain a clear advantage in the bloody conflict. In August 1918, one year after the United States entered the war, Allied troops launched an attack near Amiens, France. It was the first of many Allied offensives that would take place all along the Western Front during the next 100 days. These small but significant attacks helped the Allies gain the advantage and ushered in the end of the war.

Author Biography
Langley, Andrew (Author)


Andrew Langley was born in 1949 in Britain. He has dedicated his career to penning educational books that meet the needs of young readers. Langley's first books were primarily straightforward works designed to explain day-to-day facts; in his "Behind the Scenes" series, for example, he explores what goes on at various familiar locations, such as a hotel and police station. As his career has progressed, Langley has increasingly focused on the subject that most interests him - history. He has produced biographies of a broad range of people from history as well as historic overviews such as The Roman News, Medieval Life, Renaissance, and Ancient Egypt.
