Military operations, France and Belgium, 1915 by James E Edmonds( Book )

11 editions published between 1922 and 2009 in English and held by 66 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This volume completes the unhappy (for the BEF) year of 1915, one described with good reason as a year of disappointment. Its special interest is that it records the first employment of the Territorial and New Army divisions as complete formations in a major offensive and the first British employment of gas. It describes the Battles of Aubers Ridge, a disaster that cost 11,500 casualties in a day; Festubert in which initial success could not be exploited; and Loos (including the Hohenzollern Redoubt) in which we first used gas, with mixed results, and in which we failed to make progress. Our casualties in the battle (25 September-16 October) amounted to nearly 50,400. Total battle losses for 1915 were 285,000 compared with 90,000 for the five months of 1914"--Cover p.4

The march on Paris : the memoirs of Alexander Von Kluck, 1914 by Alexander von Kluck( Book )

2 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 25 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The March on Paris is an account of the opening campaign of the First World War on the Western Front, as experienced by the commander of the German First Army, Alexander von Kluck. Forming the westernmost flank of the great wheeling maneuver through Belgium and Northern France that was at the heart of the Schlieffen Plan, von Kluck's army played a vital role. The first battles fought by the British Expeditionary Force, at Mons and Le Cateua, were agaist the First Army, and it was von Kluck's decisions later in the campaign that were held by many to have resulted in the German defeat on the Marne. This detailed and fascinating account of the campaign that set the future course of the First World War by one of the key players in these momentous events

Between 1925-1939 the British Empire needed for a large and uninterrupted flow of oil for both civil and military purposes. Government efforts were spent in studying all aspects of the situation, ranging from the exploration for new oil fields and experimentation into alternative energy sources. The discovery and exploitation of large oil resources had already brought the Middle East to the attention of the world's major powers. The scramble for oil rights was exacerbated by the Arab Revolt in Palestine, a reaction to British support for a Jewish homeland
