Field Marshal Sir Douglas Haig

Another of the more controversal aspect of the First World War - General Douglas Haig, later Field Marshal, Sir Douglas Haig.

Haig commanded the BEF in France and Flanders from 1915 until the end of the war. Even today views of Haig are very divided. Hopefully these links will help your understanding of him.

For an insight into the strength of feeling about Haig, even today, check out these books reviews... (select customer reviews)

Military disciple in WW1

A very useful link which looks at the subject of British military discipline in WW1.

A few more links to look at the emotive and controversal issue of military executions in WW1.
Info from the Shot at Dawn campaign - this group campaigned for pardons for all those shot so be aware of that when reviewing their site.
