Douglas Haig

£5.99

Available in Stock

After the 1918 Armistice and until his death in 1928, Douglas Haig was hailed as a British national hero; by the mid 1930s, his reputation lay in ruins, with Lloyd George’s war memoirs in particular portraying him as an incompetent general. In this major biography, based on Haig’s writings, official documents and the writings of contemporaries, Professor Sheffield offers a more rounded portrait, and combines conventional biography with an examination of Haig’s role within the British Army of the First World War.
