The Kaiser's battle.


Recommended Posts

Hello, regardingMartin Middlebrook's book " The Kaiser's battle" does anyone know if the memories that he collected but weren't used in the book were ever published anywhere else ? Or do they still exist ?

Middlebrook's  collection of materials on the Somme  for "First Day"  were transferred to another and then purchased recently by the Imperial War Museum. I do not know if the Kaiserschlacht materials were included but there should be some stuff on either Google or by searching on the IWM website about what was obtained. Interesting question- never thought the different chunks might go in different directions.


    Update=  Yes, the 1918 materials were included in the  acquisition. This from the IWM entry on the Middlebook collection:


Content description
