The Battle of Arras Centenary Tour

The Battle of Arras began on 9 April 1917 and was Britain’s first major battle following The Battle of the Somme in 1916. Although The Battle of Arras saw significant successes on the first day, it became enormously costly and eventually resulted in 150,000 British casualties.  The Arras battlefield is now the site of some of the most striking memorials from the First World War and on this battlefield tour we will visit many of these, as well as visiting sites from the battle 100 years to the day of the dramatic events which occurred there.
