Haig: A Re-Appraisal 80 Years On (ePub)
Field Marshal Earl Haig's reputation continues to arouse as much interest and controversy as ever.
This volume represents the collaboration of two leading historical societies, The British Commission for Military History and The Douglas Haig Fellowship. Leading historians have produced a comprehensive and fascinating study of the most significant and frequently debated aspects of Haig's momentous career.
If one was looking to get one book to learn about Douglas Haig, this is the volume to get a copy of. At the same time, it is a book that you can dip into. References are at the end of each chapter which makes the book particularly useful for quick research. The references contain a vast array of historiography which is of particular assistance for research.Jon Sandison, Freelance
There is much to be learnt from this excellent text, and any student of modern warfare, leadership should be a set text. As these leading scholars are blowing apart the lazy teaching of recent years and really giving us an insight into Haig without the hyperbole of late twentieth century scholars. I cannot recommend this book highly enough, and it will may even challenge some of your modern conceptions about Haig.Reviewed by Paul Digget
