Publishers Description: In this controversial and expertly researched book, Robin Neillands seeks to explode the prevailing myth that the Allied Generals in the Great War were responsible, through their callous and incompetent military leadership, for the catastrophic loss of life on the Western Front. The widespread opinion that the British soldiers were 'lions led by donkeys' has led generations to believe that Generals such as Haig, French, Plumer and Gough were solely to blame for all that went wrong during the conflict. Whilst not seeking to exonerate the Generals completely, in his meticulous account of the conflict, Robin Neillands shows that a host of other, more decisive factors played a part.
