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.
