£35.00 £14.99

A very thoroughly researched description and analysis of both sides’ efforts. The purpose of this title is threefold: to present the first operational study of the August 1914 Ardennes campaign; to demonstrate that in two particular encounter battles the French had the opportunity to inflict a tactical, possibly operational defeat upon their opponents but in both cases failed to do so; and to explore the reasons for that French failure, by relating events on the battlefield to each side’s pre-war preparations. “An important book that deserves a wide readership – Gary Sheffield”
