It proved critical in the Second World War, shaping Churchills conduct of the conflict from the Fall of France to D-Day. And as Lambert shows, Corbetts ideas continue to influence British thinking.

Andrew Lambert is Laughton Professor of Naval History at Kings College, London, and a fellow of the Royal Historical Society. A magnificent achievement, one of the most important books in decades on the origins and conduct of the Great War. Lambert offers a complete rethinking of British strategy before and into the war.

The exposure of two senior republicans as informers for British intelligence in led to a popular perception that the IRA had 'lost' the intelligence war and was pressurised into peace.
