The Marne 1914

The First Battle of the Marne was one of the most pivotal battles in history. Fought outside Paris in September 1914, it turned the tide of the German invasion of France, and robbed Kaiser Wilhelm II of his best chance of winning the First World War.

The battle began when the French and British armies launched a massive counter-offensive, and it ended – after five, tense days of fluctuating fortunes – in a German retreat. The so-called 'miracle of the Marne' was among the most crucial episodes of the war, and yet no complete, in-depth guide to the battlefield has been available until now in English.

Andrew Uffindell begins his guidebook with a gripping account of the battle, followed by a series of easy-to-follow tours of the battlefield. Each tour covers a particular sector in detail, using vivid eyewitness accounts to reveal what the fighting was like for the men in the front line.
