First Battle of the Marne

A significant strategic victory for the Allies, the First Battle of the Marne was fought September 5-12, 1914, and ended German hopes for a quick victory against France. The resulting “race to the sea” initiated four years of trench warfare. One of the most famous incidents of the First Battle of the Marne was the transportation of several thousand French reserve troops to the front by Parisian taxis.
