Mons 1914 : The BEF's Tactical Triumph
Osprey's examination of the Battle of Mons of World War I (1914-1918). When the First World War broke out in August 1914 the Imperial German Army mistakenly assumed that the BEF 'that contemptible little army' would be easily defeated. They were stopped in their tracks by the numerically inferior Brit'sh force, whose excellent marksmanship cost the closed packed German ranks dear. Eventually forced to fall back by overwhelming German numbers, the Brit'sh carried out a masterful fighting retreat across Belgium and northern France. At Mons, nine and a half Brit'sh battalions held four German divisions at bay for an entire day. This book examines not just the battle of Mons itself but also the ensuing Brit'sh retreat including the actions at Le Cateau and Villers-CotterÃªts.
