In the years immediately following World War I Sir Douglas Haig was reviled by many as a butcher who had sent hundreds of thousands needlessly to their deaths in ill-conceived attacks on the Western Front. In recent years a more balanced view has emerged. The authors, working with the British Commission for Military History and the Douglas Haig Fellowship, have produced a major study on an important leader of the war that was to determine the course of the rest of the 20th century.
