'In Haig's Shadow: Major-General Hugo De Pree, Douglas Haig, and the First World War'

First World War history public lecture by Professor Gary Sheffield

We hosted another fascinating lecture by Professor Gary Sheffield in February. 'In Haig's Shadow: Major-General Hugo De Pree, Douglas Haig, and the First World War'. The two men were cousins and close friends and Gary discussed the relationship between them. Gary is the author of a new book on De Pree, 'In Haig's Shadow'. Our audience learnt about Britain's most controversial general, and De Pree's distinguished career. Some really interesting questions followed at the end of the talk!
