First Battle of Marne by Earle, Jr. Rice
(Battles That Changed the World)

No critic rating

Waiting for minimum critic reviews


Marathon, Hastings, Midway -- just a few of the major battles covered in this series, which introduces readers to the wartime engagements that changed the course of human history. Each book gives a historical account of a decisive battle -- its participants, the political climate leading to the engagement, and the deciding factors that ultimately led to a victory or defeat. This critical battle between the French and the Germans in September 1914 illustrates well that World War I was a war fought in the trenches.
