4.0 out of 5 stars Despite the title, mainly about the German army on the Western Front, 17 Jan. 2013
By 
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Based on the author's PhD thesis, this book looks mainly at the morale of the German army on the Western Front, but also the British Army. The collapse referred to in the sub-title is of the German Army!. It is based on letters, intelligence and combat reports. It is an extremely useful contribution, but I feel a better discussion of what actually comprsies and contributes to morale would have made it more useful.

4.0 out of 5 stars Has Field Marshal Haig Been Underestimated?, 11 Jan. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Tough reading but the first serious English study of the difficulties of the German Army in WW1. Makes one think that the German army in Flanders suffered much more than the English & Commonwealth. This in turn work prompts me to think that the critics of Haig (who was hoping that one big push would crack the German army) could have been too critical. Haig was entitled to rely on his instincts as well as an unsatisfactory head of intelligence, Charteris.,perhaps Professor Sheffield should be invited to review Dr Watson's book.

4.0 out of 5 stars Enduring the Great War: Combat, Morale and Collapse in the German and British Armies, 1914-1918, 6 Aug. 2010

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
If one considers that the truth about both the British & German Armies as being symbolised by an onion. Then this book strips away many of the layers of the propaganda and stereotyped impression built up by years of Propaganda misleading "histories"i.e. Books written without access to the facts and for that matter Films both War Time and Subsequent.

It is refreshing through this book to get closer to what happened, how it was dealt with at most levels and the disillusionment and reaction to politicians that followed
