MARSHAL JOSEPH JACQUES CÉSAIRE JOFFRE (12 January 1852 - 3 January 1931) was a French general who served as Commander-in-Chief of French forces on the Western Front from the start of World War I until the end of 1916. He is best known for regrouping the retreating allied armies to defeat the Germans at the strategically decisive First Battle of the Marne in September 1914. He led spring offensives in 1915, in Verdun in 1916, and the Anglo-French offensive on the Somme in 1916. At the end of 1916 he was promoted to Marshal of France, the first such promotion under the Third Republic, and moved to an advisory role. He became leader of the Supreme War Council in 1918. He died in 1931, aged 78.

From August 1916, his appointment as Quartermaster general (Erster Generalquartiermeister) made him, along with Paul von Hindenburg, the leader of the German war efforts during World War I until his resignation in October 1918, just before the end of hostilities. He died in 1937, aged 72.

He was a commander at the First Marne, Flanders, and Artois campaigns of 1914-1916 and became the Allied Commander-in-Chief in 1918, successfully co-ordinating the French, British, American, and Italian efforts. He died in 1929 aged 77.
