    Does anyone have any recommendations for books about Operation Michael?

    Shorter is better but I don’t want it to skim the surface; assume that I have a good knowledge of the general background.

    The Kaisers Battle by Middlebrook is old but OK. Certainly good enough to design Wargames scenarios with.

    I think there is a reasonable Osprey on it too, but without wandering over to my bookshelf and looking I cant say. I had enough info for an Army level game of the battle for Peronne, and I’m pretty sure it came from an Osprey.

    ‘To the Last Man: Spring 1918’ by Lyn Macdonald. MacDonald is my go-to author for WWI.

    Self taught, persistently behind the times, never up to date. AKA ~ jeff

    ‘With our Backs to the Wall’ by David Stevenson. Not short, but an excellent read that not only gives a strong account of Michael but also the 100 days and the broader context.
