Alexander Von Kluck personal storie about the battle of Marne

German General Alexander von Kluck was the scapegoat for Germany retreating during the battle of Marne. Alexander said that the decision to retreat was actually made by German Army's central command, because the Germans lost the battle of Marne on September 9th,1914,it stopped the Germans from moving forward. This caused Trench warfare to begin. Kluck was wounded in 1915,and retired. Then he wrote a book telling his side of the story.
