Excerpt from The Children's Story of the War, Vol. 6: From the Opening of the Somme Offensive to the End of the Year 1916

Before I describe the Great Push which began on the bright summer morning of Ist July, let me give you some idea of how Britain set herself to surpass the great military machine which Germany had prepared during long, diligent, and secret years. In August 1914 we were only an insignificant military power, and the Germans were quite justified in believ ing that we should play but a small part in the land fighting. It is true that the small army of six divisions which we sent abroad at the outset of the war was composed of the most highly trained soldiers in the world; but had it been com posed of Samsons, it could not have turned the scale against the millions which the Germans were able to array for their great adventure. Nevertheless this little force gave backbone to the French resistance, and made a fighting retreat which will go down to history as one of the finest feats of warfare. Despite, its losses and its weariness, it was ready, when the hour struck, to push forward and play its part in forcing the Germans to withdraw to the Aisne and begin that trench fight ing which was the beginning of the end. From the day when the German armies began to dig themselves into defensive positions, Victory, however long it might be delayed, was as sured to the Allies.
