Not many people got a bigger boost in the opening days of the war than Erich Ludendorff. I’m not totally sure about the timing of this strip and the next one. I’ve heard it was a night attack, so that’s what I’m going with. I’ll try to explain more next time, but anyway, his work in the fighting around Liege led to a quick promotion and transfer to the Eastern Front. I don’t really want to say too much about him because he’s going to come back again, and again.

One more note- the soldiers in the picture should have numbers stenciled on their pickelhaubes. This lot are all from the 14th Brigade, which Ludendorff took over.
