His 'Carnets de Patrouille' "Patrol Notebooks" , written in , report this period. When, in accordance with the Schlieffen plan that guided the flow of the German troops through the neutral Belgium to turn the French Army, Germany required the right to penetrate on its territory, the King decided to refuse it, and engaged the fight with his small army.

He will remain at that position until Inhabited by an iron will, he directed his troops with an iron hand against winds and tides towards the final victory.
The Influence of Industry on the Use and Development of Artillery
His detractors are numerous, who criticize his lack of humanity and self-criticism, his contempt of the other nations, and his little consideration of the human losses. Its 'Carnets Secrets' "Secret Notebooks" tend to confirm these defects as well as his will to win. Retour at the top of the page.
Exiled on a small Dutch island in after his abdication, the Kaiser Wilhelm II had some time to write his memories. Naturally autocrat, lately but surely seduced by the pangermanists, he led Germany to the War in by following a calamitous international politics. Bad alliances, aggressives attitudes, national ambitions, he is, even if he tries to deny it in his "Memories" , one of the biggest warmongers.
Those words are especially interesting by the role he held during the years before the war. Copiously scoffed and caricatured by the allied press, even if the escapades of his way of life could shock the front fighters, it must be admitted that he was finally a good soldier. Among other things, he led the German armies on the front of Verdun in The History - and his "Memories of the Kronprinz" - even reveal quite a cultivated spirit, and much less enthusiasm with the war than his father had.
He will follow this latter in his Dutch exile in The witness of the general Ludendorff , transcribed in the two volumes of "War Memories" , is consequently very interesting. After the war, Ludendorff sympathized with the national-Socialists, and launched with Adolf Hitler the missed putsch in Munich in Narrow opening in binding at title page of Vol I.

The Gallipoli Campaign in the Great War. The Gallipoli Campaign took place in and , between Ottoman empire and the Allies; and witnessed the toughest naval and land battles of World War I. The Allied Forces were aiming to capture the Dardanelles and Bosphorus straits, and then push Ottoman Empire out of the war. Whereas Turkish Army was there to defend the straits, and to stay in the war, by any means.
Bursali Mehmed Nihad participated in these battles as captain in the first year and continued as major in the next presents an important first hand study that recites the Gallipoli Campaign, which caused hundreds thousands of casualties for both sides. He refuses to concede the idiocy of the carnage produced by His Majesty's hope that Turkey could be conquered by naval bombardment and land invasion, counting, like the Bay of Pigs planners, on an internal uprising that never took place.
