9780752452470: The Mons Myth: A Reassessment of the Battle

Conventional histories of the battles of Mons and Le Cateau describe how, although the British were massively outnumbered, precise and rapid British rifle fire mowed down rows of German troops. The staggering German casualties made these battles British victories, and set the stage for the Battle of the Marne. Neither battle has ever been described in English from the German point of view. Using German tactics manuals and regimental histories, The Mons Myth describes the battles at Mons and Le Cateau. It also subjects British tactics to a critique that goes beyond admiration for rapid rifle fire and presents new and startling perspectives of both Mons and Le Cateau, showing how the Germans employed a high degree of tactical sophistication in conducting a combined-arms battle. The odds at both battles were, in fact, even, and German casualties never reached the levels described in the standard histories. The Mons Myth is the first history of these battles to take this approach in ninety years.

Description du livre History Press, 2010. État : New. British historians have conventionally portrayed the battles of Mons and Le Cateau as successes of the heavily outnumbered British Expeditionary Force, which mowed down the German army with precise and rapid rifle fire. But Zuber offers a startling new assessment from the enemy's viewpoint: using German tactical manuals and regimental histories he reveals that their fighting techniques have been misunderstood, British troop-leading was poor and German casualties did not reach the levels claimed.
