LIAISON 1914 A Narrative of the Great Retreat

LIAISON 1914 
A Narrative of the Great Retreat  

RRP: £30.00
OUR PRICE: £4.99  

A classic account of the opening weeks of the Great War written by Edward Spears who, as Liasion officer between the BEF and the French high command, witnessed the crucial meetings at which the course of the conflict were decided.
This is the classic account of the British Expeditionary Force's role in the opening weeks of the Great War, written by Edward Spears, the young British officer who, because of his fluent command of French, was appointed as liaison officer between the BEF and the French High Command. In his preface to his friend's book, Winston Churchill writes that he found Spears' eye witness account ‘so captivating that I could scarcely lay them down'. As the German juggernaut rolled through Belgium and into France in August 1914 Spears was present as interpreter in crucial meetings between Sir John French, the BEF's commander ( who spoke no French) and the French commanders Lanrezac, Joffre and Foch. Liaison 1914 is no dry-as-dust military history, but an enthralling description of world-shaking events as the decisions that would dictate the course of the war were taken. No-one remotely interested in the history of the conflict can afford to miss this book. Overseas clients please note: Due to excessively high wrapped weight shipping is weighted on this title.
