The battlefields of Cambrai are amongst the least visited of the Western Front battlefields of World War 1. This is even more surprising when you realise how ground breaking the 1917 battle was. The Allies used what was then a revolutionary method of attack utilising massed tanks and aircraft. This method was subsequently intensively studied by the Germans and evolved into the blitzkrieg methods of the German Army in World War Two.
I returned to the battlefield in November 2006, exactly 89 years after the 1917 battle. I welcome contributions from others who have visited the battlefield and intend that this site is a collaborative effort to preserve the memory of those who died on both sides 90 years ago.
