Concern for Germanys growing militarism, Kaiser Wilhelm IIs obsession to match Britains Navy and the existence of the long established French and German war plans only fuelled the air of instability in Europe. It was the assassination of Archduke Franz Ferdinand that ignited the global conflict. The first phase of war, known as the Battle of the Frontiers included the efforts of the British Expeditionary Force at Mons, the regrouping of the British and French at Marne and the brilliant victory by the Germans at Tannenberg. The second phase The Race for the Sea saw both sides attempting to outflank their enemies but each operation was thwarted. By Christmas stalemate was reached and trench warfare characterised the conflict on the Western Front.
