About the Author:

Ian F. W. Beckett & Steven J. Corvi are both authors and military historians.

Review:

For those who subscribe to the Haig was an incompetent butcher opinion, this book will perhaps open minds and bring the realities of Haig’s situation into focus... will assist any battle guide or researcher seeking to give color to the men behind the reputations. (Mike McCarthy/Western Front Association)

...rigorous scholarship, accessible structure and some truly engaging prose. (Military Illustrated)
