Unconquerable, Arthur Rackham illustration for Prince Albert's Book. Unconquerable was Arthur Rackham's contribution to King Albertís Book.  As king, Albert refused to allow German troops safe passage through Belgium to pre-emptively attack France, who the Germans believed would enter Belgium en route to attacking Germany in support of Russia. The German invasion brought Britain into the war as one of the guarantors of Belgian neutrality under the Treaty of 1839. King Albert, as prescribed by the Belgian constitution, took personal command of the Belgian army, and staved off Germany long enough for Britain and France to prepare for the Battle of the Marne in September 1914.
