Action : The Battle of the Aisne 1918 

27 May - 6 June 1918. In another attempt to exploit perceived allied weakness after the initial Kaiserschlacht campaign of March-April 1918 had lost momentum, the German command directed an attack on the area around Soissons-Rheims against the French army. It was the misfortune of five British Divisions to have been sent to that ?quiet? sector to recover after the exertions on the British front and find themselves in the way of, and bearing the brunt of, yet another German assault. They suffered significant losses before the French army could restore the situation.
