Best Answer

The Battle of Liege took place from Aug. 5-16, 1914, in Belgium. The Germans marched through neutral Belgium on their way to Paris. They thought they would encounter no or only token resitance. However, they were suprised that the Belgians put up a decent fight. This was the first land battle of WWI. The Germans brought out a 'new' gun, 'Big Bertha', a large howitzer with which they shelled the 12 forts surrounding Liege. German commander Luddendorf finally convinced the fort in the center to surrender and thus gained a strategic advantage for the Germans. Eventually the Belgians were pushed back to Antwerp. It is said that Liege was a moral victory for the Allies.
