Dan Snow looks at the Battle of Amiens - the beginning of the end of the First World War, and the symbolic start of modern warfare

In August 1918 after years of disappointment, bloodshed and stalemate, Allied troops launched a surprise overwhelming attack on the German Army - a short, four day battle in which the Allied forces advanced 12 miles, more than the total advance of the Somme and Passchendaele offensives combined. Veterans recall how they did it.
