The Great Silence - Armistice 1918

2 This commemorative booklet briefly sets out the complex military and political steps that led to the Armistice with Germany and describes how the news was received in the firing line and at home. The focus is on the British and Imperial Armies in France and Belgium (the Western Front) but Armistices were just as significant in all the other theatres of war and just as significant to our American, Belgian, French, Italian, Portuguese and other Allies. This booklet is dedicated to them all.
