This path-breaking study by leading historians of the First World War considers all aspects of command at all levels on the Western Front. Drawing upon a wealth of original material, a mixture of established historians and younger scholars consider such topics as the adjustment to static warfare; the role of GHQ; Hubert Gough's style of command at Fifth division; artillery command; and divisional command at Passchendaele. To put it simply: if the British Army really had been led by donkeys and had been as inflexible and incompetent as it has been made out, then how was the war won and how did the Army reach such a peak of military excellence in 1918?Find out in this book.
