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


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Haig and this fresh compilation incorporates letters and other writings by both men, many of which are previously unpublished.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 .
