¿Haig: The Evolution of a Commander¿ by Andrew A. Wiest, essentially an extended treatise on Douglas Haig, is my sixth military biography from the presses of Potomac Books. Mr. Wiest attempts to resurrect the exceedingly tarnished often maligned image of Douglas Haig the British expeditionary Force commander during World War One. Granted Mr. Wiest makes some cogent arguments, places Haig in a good light and does away with common misconceptions. However, this reader simply cannot overlook the catastrophic casualty rates Haig was responsible for, even though likewise commanders suffered counts just as high if not more. Overall an excellent military profile and but definitely a tough stance to defend.
