The Retreat From Mons, or ‘The Great Retreat’, was a harsh lesson for both the British troops who were retreating in the face of the overwhelming forces of the German Armies, and the Germans themselves, with the stubborn tenacity and fighting abilities of the long-service British Tommies.

The book was officially endorsed and benefits from a foreword by Field Marshal French who was in command of the British Expeditionary Force at the time.
