The mass tank attack on the first day of The Battle of Cambrai, 20 November 1917, was one of the most successesful attacks of the First World War; the day was the only one on which church bells in Britain rang for victory. The Battle of Cambrai ended in disappointment, with the Germans regaining most of the ground taken, but it is always remembered as the first massed tank attack.
Sites from The Battle of Cambrai provide the major focus of this battlefield tour. However, Cambrai was also the centre of some of the most dramatic events of the final stages of the war in 1918 and we will include some of these sites in the tour.
