Tam McCluskey, 'The memory of our fights will stand':The 51st Highland Division at Cambrai.

 

In the Autumn 1917 things looked good to Ludendorff who had successfully withdrawn the German Army to the Hindenburg Line earlier in the year. However, since the battle of Beaumont Hamel, the 51st Highland Division had enjoyed success after success; now they had been chosen for a new adventure that would change the whole conduct of future operations.
