Riassunto: Jack Sheldon examines the German mindset at the close of 1914 when it became apparent that a quick victory was no longer a possibility. Both sides were temporarily exhausted in static positions from the Channel to the Swiss Border. In a reversal of roles, the French launched major offensives in Champagne and Artois, while the British Army, adapting to the demands of large scale continental warfare, went on the offensive in support at Neuve Chapelle, Aubers Ridge and Loos. Such was the Allied pressure that the only German offensive in 1915 was at Ypres in April using gas on a large scale for the first time. 1915 was a transitional year on the Western Front with lessons being learned the hard way by both sides prior to the massive attritional battles of 1916 and 1917. Using his skill at archival research, Sheldon describes how the 1915 experience shaped the German approach to the cataclysmic battles that lay ahead, leading to the ultimate, previously unthinkable defeat of the Kaiser’s Germany.

About the Author: Educated at Inverness Royal Academy, the Royal Military Academy Sandhurst and the Universities of Lancaster and Westminster, Jack Sheldon completed a thirty-five year career as a member of the Queen’s Lancashire Regiment. In 1982 he graduated from the German General Staff course at the Führungsakademie, Hamburg and went on to fill international staff appointments and to command an infantry training battalion. His final post before retirement in 2003 was as Military Attaché Berlin. He now lives in France and has rapidly established himself as an expert in German First World War history. He was an honorary researcher for the Thiepval Visitor Centre Project, is a member of the British Commission for Military History and is the author of the highly acclaimed The German Army on the Somme 1914 – 1916, The German Army at Passchendaele and a number of Battleground Europe titles.

Descrizione libro Pen Sword Books Ltd, United Kingdom, 2012. Hardback. Condizione libro: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. With the Central Powers holding the initiative throughout, 1915 was the year that largely determined the way the remainder of the war would be fought. Constantly on the offensive in the vast open spaces of the Eastern Front, the German Army stood on the strategic defensive in the West. There, with minimal ground-holding forces and thanks to skilful deployment of limited reserves of men and guns, it repulsed with bloody losses every attempt by the Western Allies to drive it from occupied France and Belgium.Shortages of weapons, equipment and ammunition forced both sides to tool up for what was clearly becoming a long war of attrition. Although the Western Front had stabilized by the end of 1914, this did not mean that tactical thinking and developments also stood still. Every Allied attempt to break the deadlock elicited a response from the German defenders, who brought the tactics of positional warfare to a high state of refinement. Trench systems increased in depth and complexity. The machine gun proved its lethality and the result for the Western Allies was one costly setback after another, with French losses reaching a staggering 1,000,000 fatalities by the end of the year.This superbly researched book provides the clearest and most comprehensive German perspective yet on this period of the War. It covers such well-known actions as Neuve Chapelle, Ypres, where gas was used on a large scale for the first time, Aubers Ridge and Loos as well as the appalling clashes in Champagne and the Argonne Forest.The latest in the Author s acclaimed series, The German Army on the Western Front, 1915 will be welcomed as essential reading by all with a close interest in the First World War.
