    Research output: Book/Report typesBookResearch

    Abstract

    Cuthbert Headlam joined the Bedfordshire Yeomanry in 1910 and deployed with them to France in 1915. He moved across to the General Staff and, reaching the rank of Lieutenant-Colonel, served in a variety of mainly intelligence posts before becoming the British Expeditionary Force’s principal doctrine writer. After the First World War he became a Conservative politician but also edited the Army Quarterly until 1942. Combining the social connections of an insider with the professional detachment of an outsider, his letters and diary entries provide an always informative, often acidic, and sometimes entertaining insight into the British Army in the era of Total War
