First Battle of the Marne
The German advance into France was rapid and devastating. Allied forces launched a counter-attack at the Marne river near Paris where French and British troops were able to halt Germany's advance into French territory and force a German retreat. 100 years later we mark the anniversary of this decisive battle which also saw the beginning of the trench warfare that would go on to characterise the First World War.
