  • Belgium
  • France

  • A German guy named Alfred Schliefen planned an attack on 1905 so the Germans can avoid a war on two fronts with France and Russia
  • Germany went through Belgium to France because Belgium is a neutral country and on the south east of France there were the french force so the Germans cant pass through
  • When the 90% of the Germans attacked France they would go through the french force and then join the 10% on the border of Germany and Russia
  • The Germans assumed that Russia would take at least 6 weeks to mobalise, France would be easily defeated in 6 weeks. Belgium would not resist any German attack. and that Britain would remain neutral
  • The plan was put into action on 2nd August 1914, however it did'nt go as planned 
  • Russia mobalised in 10 days, the BEF (British Expeditionary Force) arrived quickly and France was not easily defeated in 6 weeks.
