At the outbreak of World War I, the German army swept through neutral Belgium. David Bilton’s The Germans in Flanders 1914 follows in photographs, captions and text their presence in the region from August 1914 until the end of the year.
Bilton’s approach is unique in that it describes the period from the German point of view. Supported by rare photographs, his text highlights the Kaiser’s Army’s battles with the French, Belgians and British, portrays life on the front lines and in rear areas, and shows how the war changed the towns and villages it touched. Complete with a chronological order of events and a section on the German divisions that fought in Flanders, here is a dramatic look at one of the crucial phases of World War I.
