Beating The Retreat

Brexit, Europe and all that. It could be worse.

Long ago in the '40's I knew a couple of men who had taken part in The Retreat From Mons in August 1914, picture above. The German Army had attacked on the Western Front and the British and French were forced into a sudden and hasty retreat from what they thought were strongholds.

What is intriguing to those who like to look at the detail of the military decisions at the time is how and why the British, French and for that matter the Germans made so many wrong ones given all the great planning and training of the period before 1914.

The consequence was four years of bitter war fought from trenches together with incessant artillery fire. The casualties were immense and these powerful Empires were put at risk of collapse as happened with the Russians.

The world was never the same again and Europe suffered many years of slump and poverty in the coming decades leading to yet another major war.

On the other hand given the quality of the politicians and governments at present as well as those of the European and World institutions, it might just get worse.


  1. Yes, given the quality of the politicians and governments things could easily get worse. Where do we retreat to though?

  2. My ex-husband and I had always managed to stay friendly after our divorce in February 2017. But I always wanted to get back together with him, All it took was a visit to this spell casters website last December, because my dream was to start a new year with my husband, and live happily with him.. This spell caster requested a specific love spell for me and my husband, and I accepted it. And this powerful spell caster began to work his magic. And 48 hours after this spell caster worked for me, my husband called me back for us to be together again, and he was remorseful for all his wrong deeds. My spell is working because guess what: My “husband” is back and we are making preparations on how to go to court and withdraw our divorce papers ASAP. This is nothing short of a miracle.
