Haig's Enemy

Crown Prince Rupprecht and Germany's War on the Western Front

Jonathan Boff

  • The in-depth story of the Western Front, as seen from the perspective of one of Germany's leading First World War generals
  • Illuminates the strengths and weaknesses of the imperial German army, its view on the First World War and British generals, and the relations between Prussia and the other German states
  • A new view of a dynamic 'battle-space', both physical and intellectual, where three armies struggled not only to out-fight but also to out-think their enemy
  • Also the tale of a personal tragedy — of a man who lost a son, a war, and a throne in the course of four short years
