Description

CAMBRAI, 1917: The First Blitzkrieg.

In the pre-dawn darkness of 20 November, 1917, 378 British tanks and eleven divisions of infantry mounted the first truly mobile offensive in history, overrunning German positions with a rapidity comparable to the Blitzkreigs of the Second World War. Only a tenacious German defense-in-depth and an equally devastating counterattack employing the new, then-secret infiltration tactics, prevented the British from making a decisive breakthrough. Despite this setback, Cambrai was the forerunner of the mobile warfare of the Second World War.

Now, THE FIRST BLITZKREIG: CAMBRAI, 1917 allows you to recreate this battle, one of the most significant in military history. Two players, each taking on the role of one of the historical commanders, use the Mapboard, 72 unit counters, and complete rules of play, to either change or recreate the historical results."
