Douglas Haig lecture at National Army Museum

Image

Leading historian Professor Gary Sheffield will be assessing how much credit Sir Douglas Haig deserves for allied victory on the Western Front at the National Army Museum on 17 January.

The lecture, entitled Douglas Haig: Was He the Accidental Victor in 1918? will begin at 7pm and will consider how Haig remains perhaps the single most controversial general in military history.

Feted as a victor in 1918, within fifteen years his reputation had collapsed, and despite the efforts of some military historians, it has never fully recovered.
