Trailer of Marne 1914
The 1st Battle of the Marne (also known as the Miracle of the Marne, Le Miracle de la Marne) was a WW1 battle
fought from 6â10 September 1914. It resulted in an Allied victory against the German armies in the west. The battle was the culmination
of the German advance into France and pursuit of the Allied armies which followed the Battle of the Frontiers in August and had reached
the eastern outskirts of Paris. A counter-attack by six French armies and the British Expeditionary Force (BEF) along the Marne River
forced the Imperial German Army to retreat north-west, leading to the First Battle of the Aisne and the Race to the Sea.
The battle was a victory for the Allied Powers but led to four years of trench warfare stalemate on the Western Front.
