Description: The 1st battle of Aisne was fought between the German empire and an alliance of France and Britain in September 1914. It took place at Aisne, France and was a follow-up allied offensive following the German retreat from the battle of Marne. The Germans settled in a very strong position over the 100ft wide river Aisne, across a mile long floodplain atop a sharp cliff face some 300-400 feet high. The British crossed the Aisne under dense fog and approached the German position. As they advanced up narrow paths, the fog lifted,and the Germans cut them down. Both sides, unable to dislodge the other, dug trenches and waited. The result was indecisive with Britain experiencing casualties and dead of around 12,000.
