The Tragedy of Sir John French is a biography of John D. P. French, who was considered the best field commander in England, but then deemed a failure and was replaced. The author, George Cassar, does not entirely share the failure conception and considers French was a dedicated soldier and fine cavalry leader with an uncanny ability to inspire men, but that he was ill-suited to command the BEF in the conditions of 1914-15. Dr. Cassar's narrative, which includes a number of wartime photographs and drawings as well as many detailed maps, is based on a wealth of documentary sources and a result of over four years of research.
