"The battle of the Marne was one of the decisive encounters of World War I, in which France's victory almost certainly saved her from being knocked out of the war. Following the German invasion of Belgium and northern France, the French were defeated in a series of battles along the frontiers between 14 and 25 August. However, the German right flank had become overextended, enabling the French commander General Joffre to launch a series of counter-attacks. After six days of fighting the Germans realized that their plan to defeat France quickly had failed and they retreated to the Noyon-Verdun line, where the trench warfare of the Western Front began." Interior - clean and tight with no previous ownership marks. Exterior - very light wear at corners of front cover, two very small ddints on fron cover.
