About Book

Under cover of darkness late on the night of 5 August 1914, five columns of German
assault troops, which had entered Belgium two days earlier, were converging on the town
of Liege, expecting little resistance. To their surprise they were halted by determined fire
from the town’s outlying forts. This was a setback for the Germans: control of Liege was
essential before they could proceed with their main operation against France. They were
forced to resort to siege tactics, using heavy howitzers. These fired shells up into the air
and they plunged fr om a height of 12 000 feet to shatter the armour-plating of the forts.
Strong though they were, these Belgian forts were not equipped to withstand such a batter­
ing for long; on 13 August the first one surrendered and three days later Liege was under
German control. This was the first maj or engagement of the First World War, that horri­
fying conflict of monumental proportions which was to mark the beginning of a new era
in European and world history.
