Journey’s End, written in 1928 by English playwright R.C Sherriff, is set in the trenches near Saint-Quentin, Aisne in the days building up to the major German offensive of 21 March 1918, designed to separate the British and French Armies, push the British back to the sea, and to seize the Channel Ports.
The offensive was eventually halted near Amiens and the German advance was reversed in the autumn of 1918 in the Allies hundred days offensive which ended the war in Europe.
