They feared that the introduction of strong German forces such as the Divisions defending the Pas de Calais would allow the Germans to overwhelm the Allied right flank. I was wondering if these fears were truly reflected on the battlefield. [post=37244]Quoted post[/post] Good question. I don't know if the fear extended down to army and corps planning. Once you get below that level, you're more concerned with what's directly in front of you. Sorry, not the best answer.
