Yes, indeed, shame on me because just for a brief moment I thought my e-pal, JK, had sent me a link containing a real howler. It came from the War on the Rocks site and it's heading was:
The World War I You Remember Began 100 Years Ago at Ypres
Hang on a minute, I thought, the war started in August not late October. Oh dear, my bad because I failed to read that title carefully enough. The first three months of the war were definitely not the WWI we all remember. During those first few months it was a war of movement and, to a certain extent, a war of manouvre. It was only when the Germans lost their nerve and their belief in the invincibility of the Schlieffen Plan that they drew back and then the trench digging race to the Channel began. After that it became the 'slug-fest' we all know about. Thus the stage was set for the first battle of Ypres - there were to be two more! On realising that the Schlieffen Plan had failed, Falkenhayn was alone in the High Command in recommending a diplomatic settlement. Also, according to his Wiki entry, later on when Falkenhayn took part in the war in Palestine he was instrumental in stopping any mistreatment of the Jews.
So, thanks, JK, an excellent link.
