Biography

Scottish military, the appointed Commander-in-Chief of the British army in France and Belgium on 12/15/1915; he held the post until the end of the war. On 7/31/1917 he began the Battle of Passchendaele, Flanders; in the next three months, there were 300,000 British and 200,000 German casualties. His 1918 attack broke Germany's Hindenburg line.

After the war, he was made an Earl and was awarded a grant. During his later years, he was active on behalf of wounded and unemployed ex-servicemen. However, his ability in the field was questioned as reported in A.J.P. Taylor's, "History of the First World War."

Haig died on 1/29/1928, London, England.
