From the preface: “Many important events occurred in the period now dealt with: the inauguration of unrestricted U-Boat warfare (1st February); the beginning of the Russian revolution (12th March); and the entry of the United States of America into the War (6th April). In the military operations, the retirement to the Siegfried-Stellung, called by us the Hindenburg Line (14th March-5th April), was carried out by the Germans, and the Battles of Arras and the Second Battle of the Aisne (Nivelle Offensive) were fought. Serious unrest in the French Armies followed the latter; General Petain succeeded General Nivelle in command, and again the Allied plans were revised.”
