The Educated Soldier - Douglas Haig - 2005

£9.99 Out Of Stock

Product description

Paperback, by John Terraine
published by Cassell Military Paperbacks
2005 edition

In this book, the renowned historian John Terraine takes a more objective approach to the figure of Douglas Haig. Scrupulously researched and brilliantly written, this is the definitive biography of this controversial man. It is also a history of the Western Front, the scene of some of the worst fighting on record, as seen through the eyes of those at the very highest level. (taken from the back cover of the book)

The history of the Western Front and the First World War is one of battles of attrition against an entrenched enemy, with terrible casualties suffered by both sides in some of the worst fighting ever. In this history the picture has emerged of British generals remote and detached from the reality of the trenches who repeatedly sent their men to die in pointless attacks against the enemy. This book, by the renowned historian of the First World War John Terraine, scrupulously researched and brilliantly written, takes a more objective and accurate approach to the figure of Haig - the supreme commander of the British Army - and to the history of the War.

In good condition with some wear around cover edges, slightly concave spine and spine creasing. Page edges foxed with a few marks.
