The Mons Myth

£7.99

Sorry, this item is now out of stock.

British historians have conventionally portrayed the battles of Mons and Le Cateau as successes of the heavily outnumbered British Expeditionary Force, which mowed down the German army with precise and rapid rifle fire. But Zuber offers a startling new assessment from the enemy's viewpoint: using German tactical manuals and regimental histories he reveals that their fighting techniques have been misunderstood, British troop-leading was poor and German casualties did not reach the levels claimed.
