    1. Haig 's ww1 record defendedInteresting read. Swims against tide of modern perception of Haig. Makes me want to read further about the man who led our troops in ww1


    2. RivertingGood rollicking read. I would definitely recommend it as an insight into the remote politician's meddling in the active soldier's expertise.


    3. Very much a Douglas Haig Apologia. He really did not make any mistakes, he was the victim of other people's errors, he was really a jolly good chap etc.Not much else to say really, a pretty good read if you allow for the imbalance.
