An excellent, well presented guide to the BEF's retreat from Mons. This book is an ideal companion to a visit to the area the BEF were initially engaged in. Well written and informative with historical context and easy to read and follow maps and way points. I will be using this book, hand in hand with Jerry's other book - "Retreat and Rearguard 1914 - The BEF's actions from Mons to the Marne - on my next Battlefield Recce in October. An excellen book.

A well written book with easy to follow routes and vivid descriptions. My main criticism is the cost. At almost £15 it is ridiculously overpriced for 150 pages. I hope this is not going to be one of a series where the authors manage to squeeze as much money out the public as possible in a ten volume set examining the retreat of the BEF towards Paris.
