Historical background

After a short bombardment, the 36th Infantry Brigade with Tank Battalion F attacked the German forward line of trenches, south of the village of La Vacquerie. The tanks had no difficulty crushing paths through the belts of wire in this sector and the infantry, that followed closely behind, confidently made their way through the narrow openings in the matted down beds of wire. Once over the first trench line, the tanks turned to the left, to rake the second support trench, while the infantry cleared the first trench of any remaining German resistance.

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

I saw them tie a soldier to a cartwheel with his arms outstretched as a punishment. I also knew of men who did themselves in. British soldiers weary of sitting in the trenches who cut their throats during leave. If order hadn't been maintained, they would have deserted. They were coerced. When you're in the army, you can't just do whatever you want. ~~~ Gaston Boudry, in the Belgian book 'Van den Grooten Oorlog' ~~~
