The Marne 1914: The Battle of the Generals

Award-winning historians Shawn Faulkner and Scott Stephenson of the U.S Army Command and General Staff College examine how the French and German high commands envisioned “the next great war,” and how their plans and assumptions clashed with the realities of modern industrial warfare. This lecture will also explore how planning, personalities and military structure in the early battles of 1914 influenced the outcome of the war.
