  1. Haig and the other British generals were incompetent leaders. How valid is this interpretation of British generals like Haig in World War One?

    One of Haig?s mistakes was the miscalculation that the British bombardments before the attack would destroy every German in the area covered. Also, many of the generals couldn?t keep up with technology and the latest strategies as they were ?the product of a system which obstructed enterprise?. The aircrafts they used were extremely weak and were useless for the purposes of war. The generals were also ?stupid? as Rawlinson brushed many ideas aside and used a 4-row attack when 2/3 rows were enough - this helped ensure heavy casualties.

A ?run on the banks? was urged, with refusal to pay taxes ? these protests placed Britain on the brink of revolution and as a result, the Great Reform Act was passed to prevent Britain from experiencing a revolution.
