[HLMainPic] Mostly concerns the middle part of the war when author was Chief of the Imperial General Staff, including discussion of the Easterners v. Westerners debate & "of his efforts to teach statesmen that armies require food, which in turn requires ships & rail or road transport. Some will think, however, that Sir William reveals a certain inelasticity of thought & of temper which to a small extent justified the impatience of the statesmen while being instructed." - Falls (awarding a coveted star).
