' Well written and persuasive ... objective and well-rounded... .this scholarly rehabilitation should be the standard biography' **** Andrew Roberts, Mail on Sunday

' A true judgment of him must lie somewhere between hero and zero, and in this detailed biography Gary Sheffield shows himself well qualified to make it ... a balanced portrait' Sunday Times

' Solid scholarship and admirable advocacy' Sunday Telegraph

Douglas Haig is the single most controversial general in British history. In 1918, after his armies had won the First World War, he was feted as a saviour. But within twenty years his reputation was in ruins, and it has never recovered. In this fascinating biography, Professor Gary Sheffield reassesses Haig' s reputation, assessing his critical role in preparing the army for war.
