The prevailing 20th-century view of the First World War as fought by 'lions led by donkeys' has been subject to revision in recent decades and this account adds weight to the argument, exploding the myth of generals operating in distant safety while millions died in the trenches. The authors profile 78 British commanders who were killed and another 146 wounded while on active service, often in the front line, between 1914 and 1918. First published in 1995.
