General Rawlinson From Tragedy to Triumph
In the First World War he held an important command position in the B.E.F
He bears a heavy part -responsibility for the disastrous first day of the Somme , but later in the battle his successful tactics inflicted heavy enemy casualties.
His Western front career culminated in a series of victories starting at Amiens.
