Battle for Marchais-en-Brie

A new supplement is being prepared for Great War Spearhead. It will cover the First Battle of the Marne in September 1914. Here is an After Action Report from one of the scenarios. The battle reproduces the fight for Marchais-en-Brie, which took place on the 8th September. The French were seeking to break through the right flank of General von Bülow’s Second Army near Montmirail. There is a description of the historical action in Osprey’s book ’The First Battle of the Marne 1914: The French ‘miracle’ halts the Germans’.
