* Germany failed to achieve a knock-out blow against France in August-September 1914. * Both sides extended the front, so that it ran from the Channel to the Swiss border. * Both sides were very evenly matched. * The fighting developed - to a large extent - to one between the manpower and, even more, the industrial capacity of Britain and France on the one hand, and Germany on the other. * Lousy generals on both sides ... They lacked imagination and kept on adding more and more of the same. (More men, more artillery and more machineguns. * The general failed to think of anything new. * In the end one of the key factors in achieving a breakthrough was the intelligent use of tanks (August 1918). When the British generals finally used massed tanks (instead of scattering them across the whole front), they achieved a major victory - and Ludendorff had his 'nineteenth nervous breakdown'.
