The

Hundred

Days

Offensive

was

the

final

period

of

the

First

World

War,

during

which

the

Allies

launched

a

series

of

offensives.

The

Second

Battle

of

the

Somme,

1918,

was

fought

over

the

same

ground

that

had

seen

such

fierce

fighting

just

two

years

before.

During

the

last

weeks

of

that

summer,

through

the

fields

of

Picardy,

the

British

Third

and

Fourth

Armies

made

considerable

advances

pushing

the

Germans

back

-

from

Albert

and

Bapaume

in

the

north,

and

through

the

open

valleys

of

the

River

Somme and Peronne further south. The German Second Army was pushed back on a 50-mile front.

While

the

Americans

were

supporting

the

British

in

an

advance

on

Arras,

the

British

Army

and

American

Second

Corps

captured

Albert.

Bapaume

fell

to

the

New

Zealanders

at

the

end

of

August,

the

Australians

crossed

the

River

Somme

and

then

advanced

towards

Peronne

breaking

the

German

line

at

Mont St Quentin and forcing them into full retreat.

Tour Highlights
Our tour starts from the historical town of Peronne, an area in which most visitors travel around the battlefields by car or bus; however, on our tours we rarely see other vehicles on the lanes we use to traverse the area. Over three days we will give you an insight from a different perspective of this famous battlefield, traveling in a small convoy of 5-6 vehicles, on tracks once trod by infantry. You’ll receive CB commentary as we drive along our route so you can really get a sense of where troops came from and what their objectives were. To book, click on the link for your chosen date. We only require a £100 deposit per vehicle or full payment if the tour is less than six weeks away. Eight weeks before the tour we will send you a balance request and invoice. Once the balance is paid we will send you an information pack including meeting places, times, booking references etc. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us at: info@battlefieldsby4x4.com
