Cassell, 1st ed., 1929. Xv + 400 pp., frontis., + photo-plates + maps. Original maroon cloth ; t.e.g. ; 24 x 16cm. Top corner bumped & edges foxed o/w V.G. Field-Marshal Earl Haig commanded the British Expeditionary Force on the Western Front from late 1915 until the end of the Great War. He was commander during the Battle of the Somme, the Third Battle of Ypres, the German Spring Offensive, and the Hundred Days Offensive, which led to the armistice of November 11th, 1918. The author served with Lord Haig in India and at Aldershot, and for the whole of the Great War with the exception of the last two months. This personal narrative is therefore a study of Lord Haig’s career by someone who shared in its momentous stages alongside him.
