WW1 Toby Jugs - The Beauvais Agreement

These Toby jugs from the Imperial War Museum (London) represent Allied commanders who attended a crisis meeting in late March 1918.
The Beauvais Agreement put French General Ferdinand Foch in command of the Allied armies. British Field Marshal Sir Douglas Haig and US General John Pershing willingly accepted.

Foch sent troops where they were most needed, rushing in reinforcements to help the British. This unity would be the key to Allied victory.
