World War 1

Sir Douglas Haig

Field Marshal Douglas Haig was born on the 19th June 1861 and commanded the British forces through to the end of the First World War to 1918.

Douglas Haig has come under heavy criticism due to the amount of casualties during the First World War with many suggesting his lack to grasp modern technology and and new tactics at the time.

Douglas Haig was generally fairly popular during the War and received praise from many World War one Veterans but some had labelled him "Butcher Haig" due to the high number of British casualties, with the Battle of the Somme being recorded as one of the highest number of lives lost in military history.

Lord Haig died on 29 January 1928 due to a heart attack.
