This is a hybrid meeting with Clive Harris will be 'live' and 'online' at the same time. It will be streamed live into zoom from the branch event which will be taking place in York on Saturday 11 September at 2.30pm UK time.
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.
