Battle of the Frontiers by Terence Zuber
Book DescriptionThis book presents a major new history of one of the first battles of the First World War, fought between the French and German armies in August 1914. Like the battle of Verdun, the battle of the Frontiers has been very under published and there is currently nothing in print on the battle. Military historians have assumed that the French lost the first battles of the First World War because they launched suicidal bayonet charges against German machine guns. Therefore, for nearly a century, these battles have been considered uninteresting. In reality, these were some of the most important, hard-fought and instructive battles in the First World War.The Battle of the Frontiers, Ardennes 1914 is the first history of this battle and is based on groundbreaking research conducted at French and German army archives. It also makes use of neglected French and German books and articles as well as German regimental histories, and includes personal accounts by participants such as Manfred von Richthofen (when he was still a cavalry lieutenant) and the young Erwin Rommel. "The Battle of the Frontiers, Ardennes 1914" presents a dramatically new perspective on combat in 1914.
