    1. I m giving this book 5 stars only b c the two items that irked me really didn t rate a full star demerit.First the cons a small editorial glitch where a diagram showing the German cavalry 4 horse marching formation was referenced as being on page XX and the figure itself seemed to not have made it into the book lazy maps the maps showing the charge routes did not include the Belgian unit disposition which would have made them informativeThat out of the way, the book gave an excellent historical [...]
