A contemporary iconoclast and pragmatist, Liddell Hart attempts here to moderate between the personal accounts of the war, which often emphasized only the brutal the physical violence and devestating psychological effects of combat, and the polemical documents whose aim was only to apologize or cover up the gross mistakes made by those in position of power during wartime. Only by doing so, he argues, can a sober and effective historical narrative be created to serve its purpose as a "medicinal warning of future generations". Captain Basil Henry Liddell Hart was a veteran of the Great War, incurring gas wounds at the Somme. During the interwar he was a prolific military scholar and a historian. His ideas on mechanization, though passed up by the British high command, are often said to have had a profound influence on Erwin Rommel, to devastating effects on the British Army.
