Summary
At the start of World War I, a failed offensive by the French enabled German forces to invade dangerously close to Paris. French general Joseph-Simon Gallieni employed all the city's resources to defend against the Germans. Taxicabs were used to shuttle supplies and troops from Paris to the front lines, where French troops successfully repelled the Germans along the Marne river
