Britain sent 120,000 volunteer soldiers to France at the outbreak of the First World War, a modest number next to the German and French armies. This study of the early months of the war examines the BEF's commendable performance in the opening battles of Mons, Le Cateau and the Aisne, but puts the British contribution in to proper context, revealing its shortcomings and dispelling the myth that the German forces were unthinking hordes and the French a disorganized rabble.
