| ||RELATIVE APPEAL: Field Marshal Horatio Herbert Kitchener
Born in County Kerry, Ireland and partly educated in Switzerland, Horatio Herbert Kitchener joined the British Army in 1871.
After three chapters devoted to pre-war planning and the context of political and military authority within which figures like French Generals Joseph Joffre and Ferdinand Foch, and on the British side Horatio Herbert Kitchener and Sir John French would make decisions, the remaining five chapters examine in great detail the deployment of the British Expeditionary Force to France, setbacks during the Battle of the Frontiers, the "Miracle" of the Marne, and the subsequent vicissitudes of the "Race to the Sea," ending with the onset of winter and stalemate all along the front.
