Historical background

The Nivelle Offensive of 1917 was a Franco-British offensive on the Western Front. The offensive opened with the French Third Army’s preliminary attacks on German forward observation points near St. Quentin. The initial French attack was directed against Dallon on 1 April, but failed to gain any ground. On 3 and 4 April additional attacks, preceded by a steady bombardment, captured a number of German-held villages and hill positions southwest of St. Quentin in front of the Siegfriedstellung (Hindenburg Line).

The stage is set, the battle lines are drawn, and you are in command. The rest is history.
