IN HAIG’S SHADOW Brigadier-General Hugo de Pree and the First World War

Spring Sale: £3.99

An indispensable addition to the primary source records of the First World War and the activities of the Haig family.  Hugo de Pree was a nephew of Field Marshall Haig and this fresh compilation incorporates letters and other writings by both men, many of which are previously unpublished.  . De Pree was a career soldier who ultimately was to play an important part in the planning of the Battle of Cambrai, but was later controversially sacked as a brigade commander.
A most useful preface is written by the authority on Douglas Haig Gary Sheffield, who edited this 228 page Hardback .
