Promotional Information

At the centenary of the commencement of the First World War, Atlantic re-issue this evocative biography of Douglas Haig - one of the most controversial commanders of the Great War.

About the Author

Gary Mead was a journalist for the Financial Times for ten years and has worked extensively with the BBC. He is the author of The Doughboys: America and the First World War (2000).


The best and fairest biography of Haig that I have read. -- Allan Massie * Daily Telegraph *
A subtle treatment of Haig's complex character... Mead's Haig is not a marble statue, nor a caricature butcher and bungler, but a man of very human strengths and weaknesses. The Good Soldier is the most successful attempt yet at disentangling the historical Douglas Haig from the twin excesses of Haigiography and donkeydom... Very readable. -- Gary Sheffield * TLS *
Engrossing... Here at last comes some redress for perhaps the most maligned of the principal actors in that tragedy [of] the First World War. -- Mary Skipwith * Field *
