Letting Le Cateau Out Of The Bag



Le Cateau, 1914 was played using Richard Brooks' Op14 rules and was run by Martin using his 15mm toys (and my aeroplanes). Martin has very kindly made available the briefings which I reproduce in part below. He ran the BEF while I donned the Von Kluck's spiky helmet.

After the battle of Mons on 23rd August the BEF fell back with Von Klucks 1st Army in hot pursuit. On the 25th the BEF was forced to split its march around the Forest of Mormal on the Sambre. Von Kluck's advance guards fought a series of actions with BEF rearguards but the exhausted British could retreat no further and decided to stand and fight
