In August 1914, when German troops first entered Belgium, hopes for a quick victory were high; but by the end of the year, with only years of attrition in prospect, optimism faded. This analysis of the advance into Flanders reveals the German perspective of the first five months of the war through a collection of contemporary photographs, postcards and illustrations. It also includes a day-by-day chronology of events with detailed commentary.
