Spring Offensive

The last great German offensive in the West during World War I, the Spring Offensive, including four subsidiary actions code named Michael, Georgette, Gneisenau and Blücher-Yorck, was launched on March 21, 1918, and concluded on July 18. General Erich Ludendorff realized that Germany’s only opportunity to defeat the Allies in 1918 was to strike a decisive blow against British and French forces before the arrival of American troops and materiel in overwhelming numbers. After making initial progress, the German offensive stalled due to supply difficulties and heavy casualties.
