This is Dundee's story of those that served in the First World War, and of the people left at home
9 June 1918
Battle of Matz. Fourth German offensive on French lines at Verdun. The French are forewarned of this attack by German prisoners. Nonetheless, the 9 mile German advance was impressive despite fierce French and American resistance. At Compiègne, a French counter-attack halts the German advance.
