Clean, tight, unmarked; slight wear to upper front corner of dust jacket; otherwise as new; In August 1914 the German main attack was conducted by the 2nd Army. It had the missions of taking the vital fortresses of Liege and Namur, and then defeating the Anglo-French-Belgian forces in the open plains of northern Belgium. Making use of both German and Belgian sources, and supported by tactical maps, this book describes and evaluates the construction of the fortress, its military purpose, the German plan and the conduct of the attack. Previous accounts emphasize the importance of the huge German 'Big Bertha' cannon, to the virtual exclusion of everything else; Ten Days in August shows that the effect of this gun was a myth, and reveals how the Germans really took the fortress and thus set the scene for perhaps the most destructive conflict in history.
