The Supreme Command 1914-1918
The Supreme Command 1914-1918
By Lord Hankey
Allen and Unwin, 1961, 2 pp

This is a major contribution to the history of the First World War. Based very considerably on Lord Hankey's diary and papers, its central focus is the British Supreme Command and the evolution of the machinery for conducting the war. Lloyd George is unmistakably the hero of the piece.
