Abstract

Lacking the military resources for an offensive on two fronts, in August 1914 Germany concentrated the great majority of her forces in the west to defeat France quickly (see Maps 3 & 4), leaving von Prittwitz’s Eighth Army to hold the Russians until forces could be railed east. The focus of battle was Prussia and, in particular, East Prussia that stretched out into Russian territory.
