First Battle of the Marne in Southern VictoryEdit
The Battle of the Marne was downplayed in US newspapers while it was trumpeted in Canadian newspapers. Later, when the US 1st Army was attacking into Kentucky, Major Abner Dowling tried to warn General George Armstrong Custer of the Confederate build up in Hopkinsville, stating that they faced an even bigger embarrassment than the Germans faced at the Marne river if they chose to ignore it.
First Battle of the Marne in The War That Came EarlyEdit
As the Germans tore through the low countries and into northern France they hoped that they would be able to take Paris and wash away the stink of the 1914 defeat, unfortunately although they got a lot farther than their fathers did in 1914, it still ended the same way; Defeat and Paris unconquered.
