The Fighting Starts- Germany’s strategy for fighting the war in Europe was known as the Schlieffen Plan, which entailed a holding action against Russia in the eastern front, and a quick strike through Belgium into France. When Paris fell, the Germans planned to move the bulk of its forces back to the east to defeat Russia. The German invasion started on Aud. 3, 1914 as they swept through Belgium. Unfortunately for all, both sides dug in near the Marne River in France, where both sides began digging a 300 mile long system of trenches. The bloody trench warfare contributed to the horrific carnage of the Great War.
