About the event

Dr Brian Hall examines the British Army’s communications system during the Battle of Cambrai.

Although a strategic failure, the Battle of Cambrai in November 1917 heralded tactical and operational methods that foreshadowed not only some of the war-winning techniques employed by the British Army in August-November 1918, but also elements of the initial German campaigns of the Second World War.

Brian Hall examines the battle from the perspective of communications, assessing its influence upon the fighting and, ultimately, upon the British Army’s learning process.
