Format: Paperback
Essential reading for any serious student of the Great War. Expertly edited by Gary Sheffield and John Bourne. The introduction covers: Haig the man and the development of his career during 1914-1915, his tenure as commander in chief, and his role during the last 100 days. Besides Haig's diary entries letters to his wife Dorothy, King George V and other leading figures are also included. The biographical sketches include useful and helpful mini portraits of key figures during the war, such as: Allenby, Asquith, Byng, Foch, French, Plumer, Lloyd George and Wully Robertson amonst others. There is also a helpful select bibliography of materials for further reading or research.
