Product Information
Specification
FRANCE: WW1 Commemorative medal for the 
Veterans of the 2 Battles of the Marne River 
(1914 & 1918  respectively).
On officer's bar.
The medal was established in 1937, by the 
Association of the Soldiers of the Marne River. 
President of the Association was Marshal 
Franchet d’Espérey (the French Marshal of the 
Allied Armies based in Salonica - Greece, who 
conducted successfully the assault that broke
the Central Powers defensive lines at the 
Southern Front). 
The medal was designed by the sculptor 
Maxime Real del Sarte.
During the 1st Battle of the Marne (Sep. 1914) 
the French supported by the British Army, 
through the massive recruiting effort and the 
fast deployment of the fresh soldiers to the 
front, using every available means of transpor-
ration managed to stop the German advance 
and started the changing of the war tide.
The 2nd Battle of the Marne (Jul. - Aug. 1918) 
was the last major German offensive on the 
Western Front during WW1. The attack failed 
when an Allied counterattack by French and 
American forces, including several hundred 
tanks, overwhelmed the Germans on their 
right flank, inflicting severe casualties. 
The German defeat marked the start of the 
relentless Allied advance which culminated 
in the Armistice with Germany about 100 
days later.
