Villers-Plouich

Villers Plouich and its adjacent ridges were among the last centres of German resistance west of the Hindenburg Line. The capture and consolidation of the hamlet and nearby villages in April 1917 necessitated ferocious and well-executed attacks by several British divisions. When British and Dominion troops again approached the Hindenburg Line in 1918, some of the bloodiest engagements of the Hundred Days were fought over the ridges of Villers Plouich, Beaucamp and La Vacquerie.
