Reputations Ten Years After
Reputations Ten Years After
By Captain B. H. Liddell Hart
Little Brown, 1928, 316 pp

A fascinating book by a well-known military writer, reviewing the careers and accomplishments of famous World War generals as seen at a distance of ten years. Joffre, Falkenhayn, Gallieni, Haig, Foch, Ludendorff, Petain, Allenby, Liggett and Pershing are passed in review and their actions put under the spotlight of present day knowledge. It is fair to say that the author gives some play to personal prejudices.
