    wasn't that the german plan to beat france within 6 weeks of world war 1 which went badly wrong.

    they tried to sly their way through belgium but due to the nature of modern weapons, which were untested in real warfare this alone took over 6 weeks.

    Oh and they did the same thing with bypassing french defences by going through belgium a second time in world war 2 and did defeat the french within 6 weeks.

    (Sigh), Will the French ever learn?

    i just realised you wanted to know how it worked.

    The germans had an army of around 6 million at the time (largest in the world) and were basically going to split up into around 6 groups and march in big arches, through belgium and end up encircling Paris. They got very close to paris but were then pushed back.

    I remember a quote from that schliefen guy which was sometime like 'the furthest most army must brush the english channel' if the plan was to sucseed.

    Sorry for being so inaccurate, i studied this many years ago, when i was young and naieve.
