One of a series of 12 artist proof signed prints produced for the Sphere & Tatler in 1916, 'With the British Army on the Western Front'. A SCENE ON THE SNOW-COVERED ROAD LEADING TO THE REAR
During the night the enemy had been strongly reinforced, and on the morning of November 12 made a desperate effort to retake the village; but the French and British delivered a brilliant counter attack and drove the enemy back. In the afternoon the combined forces of the Allies, supported by artillery, took the offensive and completed the rout of the enemy. Several other guns and a number of prisoners were taken in this final phase of the encounter.
