This biography of the First World War general, Sir Douglas Haig, counters the polarized views of Haig as either the butcher of the Somme or the saviour of Britain. To construct a more complete picture of his early life and career, usually neglected in favour of his wartime activities, the author draws on eight years of research into previously neglected sources as well as readily available material to reveal a man who, in his opinion, mirrored both the virtues and the flaws of Edwardian Britain, and whose misfortune it was to grow up in one age and to command in another.
