Riding the Retreat : Mons to the Marne 1914 Revisited Paperback



The retreat of the British Expeditionary Force from Mons in the early months of the First World War is one of the great dramas of European history.

Blending his recreation of the military campaign with contemporary testimony and an account of his own ride over the route, Richard Holmes takes the reader on a unique journey - to glimpse the summer the old world ended.
