Germany's invasion of France in August 1914 represented a threat to the great power status of both Britain and France. The countries had no history of co-operation, yet the entente they had created in 1904 proceeded by trial and error, via recriminations, to win a war of unprecedented scale and ferocity. Elizabeth Greenhalgh examines the huge problem of finding a suitable command relationship in the field and in the two capitals. She details the civil-military relations on each side, the political and military relations between the two powers, the maritime and industrial collaboration that were indispensable to an industrialised war effort and the Allied prosecution of war on the western front. Although it was not until 1918 that many of the war-winning expedients were adopted, Dr Greenhalgh shows that victory was ultimately achieved because of, rather than in spite of, coalition.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"This work is destined to become a major contribution to the historiography of the Great War and a significant new source for military historians. Essential." -- Choice
"Elizabeth Greenhalgh's perceptive and well-researched book is the third title in the Cambridge Military History series.... Victory through Coalition presents a straight forward thesis summed up in its title....Greenhalgh has provided not just a fine exploration of the subject at hand but a useful model for thinking about how to write the history of coalition warfare elsewhere." --Leonard V. Smith, Oberlin College, Journal of Modern History
"This work does...add to our understanding of the nature of the Allies' coalition war, showing that it was, indeed, won because of cooperation, despite the various minor and major issues that were thrown up in the course of the war." - Ross Mahoney, H-War
"...well-researched account of Franco-British coalition warfare that would be of interest to historians and general readers alike." -Werner D. Lippert, The Historian
