Phases/Periodization: (Western Front WWI)
x August – November 1914
o first few months of conflict
o German attempt to quick victory
German military and economic planners know that they are going to lose
they know this because they have the military and economic plans right in front of them
have great strategy to achieve quick victory because it has to be so
they cannot fight the general type of conflict that European armies have been fighting up to know because
they know that they do not have the sources to win in long-term war
Schlieffen Plan
o French/British stop-line
this is a stop-line where Germans are stopped in tracks and that is where trench lines are drawn until 1918
because the trench lines are not moving, the battles occur at the main location
1st Battle on the Marne River
consequently, there was the 1st Battle of Ypres
x November 1914 March 1918
o mainly because the Germans have not been able to win
o Allied attempt to evict Germans
the entire second phase is the French and British attempts to overcome the enemy trenches
2nd Battle of Ypres
Battles of Verdun
Battles of Somme
3rd Battle of Ypres (Vimy Ridge, Passchendaele)—Vimy Ridge is ridge and Passchendaele is hill
o some of the most gruesome battles have occurred in this phase because nothing was overcome from them
o consequence of trench warfare and an attempt to force some sort of decision by attrition strategy
x March November 1918
o German re-organize their front lines, how they fight, and their front lines because in 1917 Russia dropped out of
the war due to the Russian Revolution
