Peter Simkins is unashamedly one of those often called ‘revisionists’: he eschews notions of poor Generalship, ‘lions led by donkeys’ and suchlike. His core thesis is that the BEF developed very quickly under good leadership, and by 1918 had succeeded in integrating new weapons, new tactics and new methods of command and control to produce a formidable and highly effective fighting machinery. The essays make for a strong and cogent argument.
