General Ferdinand Foch

Foch Street was named after General Foch who was promoted to Commander in August 1914.

He was in charge of the French second army and ended the war as Supreme Allied Commander.

He became prominent as the man in charge of the French at the Battle of the Marne, which stopped the German advance on Paris.

He is given credit for coming up with the strategy to end the war and was later made an honorary Field Marshal in the British Army, a singular honour. He was a key negotiation in the Treaty of Versailles but failed in getting the terms he thought would limit Germany from war again.
