Abstract
    In October 1914 four armies were converging on Dunkirk. While France was preparing to defend its main Channel port, the Germans were determined to take it while the British were busy using it. Caught in the middle was the Belgian Army. Belgium was almost totally overrun, safe for a small strip of land near the Pas-de-Calais.

    This is the story of what happened between Antwerp and Dunkirk that fateful month and how the King of the Belgians safeguarded the independence of his small nation from its all-powerful neighbors.

    Contains 25 custom-made maps, several drawings and 138 seldom seen photographs.
