Classic study of the notorious gulf between High Command and the Front Line on the Western Front in 1915, particularly the disastrous generalship of Second Ypres, Neuve Chapelle and Loos. Compiled with free access to the private files of Liddell Hart, it takes its title from the well-known quotation: Ludendorff: 'The English fight like lions.' Hoffman: 'But don't we know that they are lions led by donkeys'. This work is the inspiration for Joan Littlewood's acclaimed stage musical 'Oh, What a Lovely War!'. VERY SCARCE IN ANYTHING LIKE THIS CONDITION. Enser, p.23.
