Marshal Joffre

The Triumphs, Failures and Controversies of France's Commander-in-Chief in the Great War

André Bourachot, Trans. Andrew Uffindell

In 1914, General Joffre led the French armies that blocked the invading Germans at the Marne, saving Paris from occupation and France from defeat. In 1916, after a series of failed offensives and the bloodbath of Verdun, he was dismissed. Written by a general with command experience, illustrated with maps and photographs, and translated into English for the first time, this acclaimed study provides new insights into the character and motives of this key figure of the First World War.
