This is a 12 slide, highly animated, power point presentations on World War I - Key Battles - 1914 - Battle of Mons. Each of the presentation slides are editable so you can change it to fit your individual needs.
Crossing the Channel in the early days of World War I, the British Expeditionary Force deployed in the fields of Belgium. Led by Sir John French, the BEF moved into position in front of Mons and formed a line along the Mons-Condé Canal. There they dug in to await the advancing Germans who were sweeping through Belgium in accordance to the Schlieffen Plan.
On August 22, after being defeated by the Germans, General Charles Lanrezac, the commander of the French 5th Army, began a pullback. Though a defeat, the stand of the BEF bought valuable time for Belgian and French forces to fall back in an attempt to form a new defensive line.
The night after the battle, French learned that Tournai had fallen and that German columns were advancing. Left with little choice, the BEF retreated towards Cambrai, a retreat that lasted 14 days and ended near Paris.
