The Fifth Army in March 1918 was originally published in 1921 as a corrective to the prevailing view that its men and their commander, General Sir Hubert Gough, had failed to adequately defend against the German Spring offensive. The author presents a very detailed account of both the course of the battle on Fifth Army's sector in March 1918, and the various controversies that sprung up around it thereafter. The narrative is arranged in four parts; Part I discusses the period preceding the launch of Ludendorff's offensive; Part II provides a detailed account of the fighting; Part III adds some splashes of unique personal colour, including 'A Few Scattered Impressions', and 'A Few Letters Written By Officers Of The Sixty-First Division'; Part IV discusses the aftermath of the battle, including the political ramifications and post-war controversies. This is a new edition of the May 1923 Third Edition, which featured some supplementary material compared to the two previous editions. The Helion edition also features a newly-commissioned introduction that looks back at the events of March 1918 and the post-war controversies surrounding them, and utilises unpublished correspondence between Walter Shaw Sparrow and Sir Hubert Gough. Our edition is being published in a strictly limited edition hardback run of just 250 copies, each copy individually numbered. Forming part of Helion's commitment to bringing back into print rare Great War titles with additional material produced to extremely high standards, this book represents an important contribution to the history and historiography of the British Army on the Western Front in 1918.
