Part of the A volume in The Documentary History of Western Civilization book series (DHWC)


The german strategy of fighting a two-front war by first defeating France with a massive thrust through neutral Belgium, and then finishing off torpid Russia, was devised by Count Alfred von Schlieffen, chief of the Great General Staff from 1891 to 1905. His celebrated plan, nullified so dramatically in the Battle of the Marne, became a myth invested with diabolical cunning and cynicism in Allied eyes, and with a masterly comprehension of the art of war in German opinion.
