The taking of Landrecies

Scope and Content

Reproduction of a painting. The villages along the banks of the Aisne, the Marne, and the Meuse were practically taken at the point of the bayonet; every house was a fort, and there was much fierce and desperate fighting, and hand-to-hand encounters. In the taking of Landrecies the Grenadier Guards added yet another name to their glorious record.
