This is another book from the bottom shelf of my review books – it is actually the paperback edition of The Good Soldier which was published in hardcover in 2007. At the time the book was well reviewed and I’ve included a link here to the Telegraph (UK) review.

The book re-examines Haig’s record and presents his predicament with a fresh eye. More importantly, it re-evaluates Haig himself, exploring the nature of the man, turning to both his early life and army career before 1914, as well as his unstinting work on behalf of ex-servicemen’s organizations after 1918.
