96 pp, large 8vo (9 3/4" H), soft cover. Profusely illustrated in b&w and color with photos, maps, battle plans, drawings. "In the Autumn of 1914 the professional BEF fought its last battle, aided by French troops under Foch, against a heavily reinforced German drive for the channel ports. Although the Germans failed to break through, the death knell had rung for the 'Old Contemptibles' as they were virtually wiped out in this brave defence. The names of the towns of La Bassee, Armentieres, Messines and Ypres first became known in this campaign and their echoes would be heard for the next four years." "The Osprey Campaign Series presents concise, authoritative accounts of the great conflicts of history. Each volume begins with an assessment of each commander's campaign strategy, then recounts the progress of the fighting, blow-by-blow. More than 90 illustrations, including maps, charts and colour plates accompany the text, and a series of three-dimensional battle maps mark the critical stages of the campaign. Each volume concludes with a brief guide to the battlefield today, and detailed notes for wargamers." Interior - clean and tight with no previous ownership marks. Exterior - clean and bright, flat uncreased spine. NF
