Cambrai was the last and most influential battle fought by the British on the Western Front in 1917. Over time many myths have grown up around what happened at Cambrai. The events of this iconic attack are now buried beneath accumulated legends and misrepresentations built up over almost a century. Drawing on previously unpublished letters, diaries, first hand accounts and official reports the author here examines this military milestone, and presents his account of how the myths were created, and how they changed the face of warfare for ever.
