      This book examines the reasons for the German's decision to fall back to a strong defence line while their Navy starved Britain into submission, and the 'burnt earth' policy of devastation in the area evacuated. Operations since 8 August had brought British forces forward to face the formidable deep defensive systems of the Wotan Stellung and Siegfried Stellung: the British knew the latter as the Hindenburg Line. Although they would go on to face other defences, the breaking of the Hindenburg Line was an achievement of first-class importance.
