Battle Guide The Great Retreat Tour

Our tour begins with an overview of the British Expeditionary Force’s struggle against overwhelming odds in August 1914. By 27 August the BEF had been in constant combat for four days and was reaching its breaking point. German forces continued to pursue the weary Tommies leading to several bloody rear-guard actions. Today we will look at two of these: the last stand of the 2nd Royal Munster Fusiliers at Etreux and the fierce cavalry action at Cerizy.
