BATTLE FOR TANNENBERG 1914. WORLD WAR ONE. Military experts have concluded that Tannenberg was one of the most brilliantly waged battles in the history of the world. CLEARANCE SALE

Click to EnlargeTANNENBERG 1914: WWI. In August 1914, when Germany marched into northern France, Tsar Nicholas II found himself in a dilemma. According to a treaty with the French, he was obliged to attack Germany in order to prevent his ally from becoming completely overrun. But Russia was not ready for battle. Its troops were unfit and undertrained, their equipment inferior, and the supply routes to the front worse than rudimentary. Yet the tsar stood by his treaty, confident that he would be able to overwhelm the Germans through sheer weight of numbers.

So began the Tannenberg Campaign. Over the course of the next 6 weeks, the Russians found themselves repeatedly outmanoeuvred and outwitted by their German counterparts. Incompetent leadership, faulty reconnaissance, lack of secrecy and poor communications made defeat seem almost inevitable. By mid-September, Germany had virtually annihilated one Russian army and turned a second on its heels. TANNENBERG 1914. In this new interpretation of events, the author re-examines one of the most important battles of the 20th century. In a clear, concise narrative, he explains exactly how the Germans managed to defeat a force twice its own size, and he analyzes what effect the outcome of the battle had on the course of the First World War. Hardcover, 232 pages. Many photos, maps, artwork, and statistical tables. No library on the First World War is complete without this book. From the Fields of Battle series. --
