Early this year, I went to Belgium to film a documentary about the First World War that you don't know. We always name Mons as the beginning in Britain, but Belgium and France had been fighting for weeks at that point. This series is all about the invasion and everything that happened before the BEF got there. Scroll down for a photo album.
