DVD Review – The First World War, Nery and the Retreat From Mons

READ THE FULL REVIEW

As so often in British history, a victory was impossible because the odds against the BEF were so large, but a form of victory was delivered. The German master plan to hurl massive forces through neutral Belgium to the Channel Coast and then swing round to take Paris and cut off the French Army was defeated by the British fighting retreat. At this stage it was a battle for infantry, cavalry and field guns with the British Quick Firing horse artillery performing superbly. The German lost momentum and the front came to a halt, foxholes and short trenches developing into two opposing lines of ever deeper trenches that stretched from the Channel Coast to the Swiss border.
