Douglas Haig is the single most controversial general in military history. Feted as a victor in 1918, within fifteen years his reputation had collapsed, and despite the efforts of some military historians, it has never fully recovered.

In this lecture one of Britain's leading historians, Professor Gary Sheffield, assesses how much credit Haig deserves for the victory on the Western Front.
