Having temporarily checked the Germans at Mons the BEF had no alternative but to withdraw as they were outnumbered by the enemy and Lanrezac's Fifth French Army was falling back. The Germans, however, were soon in hot pursuit, sensing the BEF were at their mercy. In a series of rear guard actions the BEF managed to hold – just. Despite Field Marshal French's instructions General Smith-Dorrien knew that he had to turn and fight on the open chalk hills above the town of Le Cateau. Here II Corps stood as the German pressure mounted and a desperate battle resulted as more and more German troops came into action; men fell, guns were lost and saved but again the BEF were able to escape. The retreat now began in earnest and repeated torturous marches followed, with little food and rest, testing even the sternest of constitutions; blisters burst and blood oozed from the boot. The Germans found the march equally challenging and at Nery once again the British Cavalry turned on the enemy and checked them. The retreat continued ever closer to Paris. Little did the Allies know that the German Schlieffen Plan was unraveling … The BHTV team again take the viewers to the heart of the action to examine weapons, tactics and raw heroism as they tell the story. Illustrated with maps and location scenes, they make this most complicated of British battles easily understandable.

This monograph investigates the reception and image of the Archaic Greek lyric Poet Anakreon of Teos (ca. 570 – 486 BCE) in fifth-century Athens. The focus is on the full-length marble portrait statue of Anakreon found in a Roman villa and now housed in the Ny Carlsberg Glyptotek in Copenhagen. The statue, widely believed to be a copy of a Greek bronze original that stood on the Athenian Akropolis some fifty years after the poet’s death, raises a plethora of intriguing questions. What role did the Ionian poet, whose activity in Athens began under the Peisistratid tyrants, play in the cultural and political program of the radical democratic statesman Perikles, or of the oligarchic opposition to Perikles? How were the distinctive features of the statue – its almost complete nudity and shaky stance hinting at inebriation – understood by the figure’s contemporary viewers?
Now available in a new and expanded edition with previously unpublished photographs, this serene and beautiful paean to New York paints a unique picture of the world's most vibrant city, from Central Park to Katz's delicatessen, the Flatiron Building to Battery Park. Imagine a New York devoid of people, its empty streets, bridges, and waterways as silent and magnificent as an Anselm Adams landscape. This is the New York that Christopher Thomas reveals in duotone photographs that are at once haunting and nostalgic. Employing a large-format Polaroid camera, Thomas shot many of these images in the early hours of the day or with long exposures. The result is a rare glimpse of the Brooklyn Bridge without pedestrians, Grand Central Station without commuters, Fifth Avenue without cars, vendors, workers, or shoppers. Not only do Thomas's photographs allow viewers to appreciate the spatial and architectural splendor of these New York City icons, but they also evoke a dreamlike feeling that is unusual in visual depictions of the city. Timeless, yet unmistakably contemporary, this collection by an internationally acclaimed photographer is an important addition to the pantheon of photographic essays of New York's most beloved settings.
