Learning on the Job – Sir Douglas Haig 1916-1918
11 Sep

When Douglas Haig took command of the BEF in late 1915, he soon realised he would have to become as much a ‘Battlefield Manager’ as ‘Battlefield Commander’.

To achieve this successfully, he was required to charm, inspire and mould those serving beneath him, this presentation looks at how he personally, developed and overcame the challenges of total war.

This presentation by Clive Harris is a replacement for the previously advertised branch event. We are very grateful to Clive agreeing to stand in at short notice. 

Members and non-members of The Western Front Association are equally welcome. Any new visitors are guaranteed a friendly atmosphere and a warm welcome from a group of like-minded enthusiasts.
