Operation AXIOM: The World War
9 February-20 March 2017: Operation Alberich—In a planned, strategic maneuver, German forces in northern France withdrew stealthily to the Siegfriendstellung (Siegfriend Position, or "Hindenburg Line"), a series of prepared defensive works along a shorter, stouter front; the Germans adopted a scorched-earth policy in the areas they abandoned, playing into the hands of Entente propaganda.

Lest we forget.
