Book Review: In Haig's Shadow - Gary Sheffield
Review by Linda Parker
In Haig’s Shadow : The Letters of Major General de Pree and Field Marshall Sir Douglas Haig
Edited by Gary Sheffield (Greenhill Books 2019)
Professor Gary Sheffield
Professor Sheffield is one of the foremost academics and authors writing about the Great War and is an authority of Douglas Haig. He has worked the correspondence he has discovered from the Haigh and de Pree families into a convincing picture of a general whose story, although he might be “In Haig’s Shadow”, has much to offer readers interested in wartime command and the human stories revealed in the letters of two intertwined families at war.
