9780992890100: The Agony of Belgium: The Invasion of Belgium in WW1

The Agony of Belgium The Invasion of Belgium in WWI August-December 1914. A contemporary account of the German Invasion of Belgium when Fox was the War Correspondent for the Morning Post, which alerted the world to atrocities visited on the civilian population, and to historic buildings. This is a rare chance to re-discover a contemporary account of a military conflict which took place a Century ago. The Agony of Belgium, written in 1914 by Frank Fox, a war correspondent veteran of the Balkan Wars, precedes the trench warfare of the Great War. It recounts events that the modern European mind would probably wish to forget. The bravery and resilience of the relatively new and untested Belgian Army, following the rejection of the German Ultimatum by the King, deserves a wider audience.

About the Author:

Sir Frank Fox was a journalist, author and campaigner who espoused the cause of warning of the dangers of a major War in Europe as early as 1909. "l was blown up by a salvo of shells. I refused to die on the battlefield. The gallant stretcher-bearers got me in. l spent the next year in hospital". Sir Frank Fox was born in Australia in 1874. He was a journalist, author and campaigner who espoused the cause of warning of the dangers of a major War in Europe as early as 1909. His views, and those of the Morning Post, were in accord and he joined the staff as a war correspondent. In 1914 he was attached to the Belgian army during the German invasion. In view of his experiences in that conflict he longed to become a combatant and was commissioned into the British Army in December 1914.
