Re: First Battle of the Marne

Thanks Graham. Fortunately I wasn't responsible for the historical accuracy of the flags :) Only the topography and the OOBs.

Re: First Battle of the Marne

Here's another example of what can be put together at quite short notice now. This photograph shows the area to the east and south of Neufchâteau in Belgium. The town of Longlier can be seen in the distance. It was the scene of heavy fighting on August 20th 1914, in the prelude to the Battle of the ...

The wargame gave us a chance to try out the battlefield set up in advance. The town of Dormans, located in the Champagne region and famous for its ...
