The Marne Campaign of 1914 (Military Classics) (Paperback)
The History of the Most Dramatic Campaign of the Great War
In August 1914 the German army invaded France via Belgium. The invasion was a desperate gamble - if Germany could not defeat France within a few weeks, there would be no hope of victory. Marching with the German army's spearhead was Hermann von Kuhl, Chief of Staff for the First Army and a devotee of the creator of the original invasion plan.
More than just a history, this is a vigorous defence of the Schlieffen Plan and German army by one of its leaders - and a damning condemnation of the High Command that led it to defeat.
Hermann von Kuhl (1856-1958) was the Chief of Staff for von Kluck's First Army in the Great War and a military historian.
