Fact of the Day: Battle of Liege

The first battle of World War I was the Battle of Liege in Belgium. While the Belgians put up an admirable defense and fight, the Germans did win the battle and take over. While a loss for the Allied Powers, it did stall Germans from advancing into French territory.

I know so little of WW I. We just don’t seem to learn from history.
