Acknowledgements

THIS book has been a long time in the making. During that time, I have incurred numerous debts of gratitude. A Leave Fellowship from the Canadian Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council made it possible for me to spend a year doing research in Britain, while the Academic Research Programme of the Royal Military College of Canada provided funding for several subsequent trips. Numerous individuals--J. O. Baylen, Michael Dockrill, John Ferris, Greg Kennedy, Paul Kennedy, Brian McKercher, Ian Nish, John Orbell, Donald Schurman, and Zara Steiner--have given me advice and encouragement. In particular, I would like to thank David French and Arnd Bohm: the former for reading the entire manuscript and making valuable comments on it, and the latter for helping to shrink an earlier, even longer version of this book to its present size. None of the above are responsible for what follows, and any errors of fact or interpretation are my own.

The following have graciously given me permission to quote from the material to which they own the copyright: Ms Jane Bonham-Carter; Viscount Esher; Lord Howard of Penrith; the Marquess of Salisbury; the Earl of Selborne; the Trustees of the National Library of Scotland and the holder of the copyright of Field Marshal Earl Haig; the Syndics of Cambridge University Library; the School of Slavonic and East European Studies; the Trustees of the Liddell Hart Centre for Military Archives; the Trustees of the Imperial War Museum; the British Library; the Master, Fellows and Scholars of Churchill College, Cambridge in the University of Cambridge; Baring Brothers; and Vickers plc. Crown copyright material is reproduced by permission of the Controller of Her Majesty's Stationery Office. My sincere apologies are due to anyone whose copyright I may have infringed unwittingly.

My greatest debt is owed to my family. My wife, Joan, has helped in innumerable ways. Her help and understanding make all things possible, and the book is dedicated to her. Our children, Anne, David, and Susan, are in no way responsible for what is in this book but are in part the reason why it has taken so long to write.
