Le Cateau 1914,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Gentlemen, We Will Stand and Fight: Le Cateau 1914 (Hardcover)
This is a battle that should to be better known, as important as Mons. Von Kluck was dealt a blow and the BEF largely got away to fight another day. Gen Smith-Dorrien deserves to be reassessed as a general with a rare feel for the battlefield, a general who was badly treated by French and whose loss was a blow to the command of the Western Front. This book tells of the heroism on the field of battle aa well as the context.
