Schlieffen Plan (German Invasion of France) Battle Map


The Schlieffen Plan was the name given after World War 1 to the pre-war planning activities by the Germans in the lead up to World War 1. Field Marshal Alfred von Schlieffen was head of the German General Staff from 1891 to 1906. This plan called for a strong right wing that pushed through Belgium, Luxembourg, and northern France, before turning south towards Paris. When war did break out in August 1914, this plan was used as the blueprint for the invasion, but this has been disputed as the basis for the invasion.  

This map shows the German units and area of responsibilities at the start of the invasion when units were attacking west.
