What is the Ludendorff gamble?

The Ludendorff Gamble probably refers to The Ludendorff Offensive of Spring 1918, also known as the Spring Offensive.Erich Ludendorff was a German Army officer who, with Paul von Hindenburg, assumed supreme command of the German forces in 1916. By 1918 Ludendorff saw that German victory in the First World War had to be obtained before the United States came in. Ludendorff's gamble was that if he mounted a massive assault on the Western Front, he could defeat the Allies before the weight of the United States tipped the balance. The withdrawal of Russia from the war following the Russian Revolution had freed 50 German divisions which could be transferred to the west. The Ludendorff Offensive did realize the greatest advances by either side on the Western Front since 1914, but the Allies ultimately held and the Germans were halted, exhausted and exposed, by August 1918. Ludendorff had lost his gamble and faded from the scene. He briefly reappeared supporting Hitler in the 1920's (another gamble) but ultimately fell out with the Nazis and died quietly in 1937.
