Historical background

The French 13th, 43rd and 38th Divisions simultaneously advanced forward towards their objectives. The 13th attacked Vaudesson village and the Belle Croix woords. The 38th entered the Garenne woods and drove the Germans from Orme Farm, while to the east the 43rd advanced on Montparnasse Quarry. Tank support for the 13th and 38th would assure that these objectives were taken.

The stage is set, the battle lines are drawn, and you are in command. The rest is history.

I saw them tie a soldier to a cartwheel with his arms outstretched as a punishment. I also knew of men who did themselves in. British soldiers weary of sitting in the trenches who cut their throats during leave. If order hadn't been maintained, they would have deserted. They were coerced. When you're in the army, you can't just do whatever you want. ~~~ Gaston Boudry, in the Belgian book 'Van den Grooten Oorlog' ~~~
