Posterity has not been kind to Douglas Haig, the commander of the British Expeditionary Force on the Western Front for much of the First World War. Haig has frequently been presented as a commander who sent his troops to slaughter in vast numbers at the Somme in 1916 and at Passchendaele the following year. The Good Soldier re-examines Haig's record in these battles and presents his predicament with a fresh eye. More importantly, it re-evaluates Haig himself, exploring the nature of the man, turning to both his early life and army career before 1914, as well as his unstinting work on behalf of ex-servicemen's organizations after 1918. Finally, in this definitive biography, the man emerges from the myth.

Alfred Novotny was born in Vienna on 1 April 1924, and was perfectly placed to suffer the ancient Chinese curse: ?May you live in interesting times.? His times were interesting and deadly, but that he survived them is not the greatest surprise. Rather, what stands out is that Fred never lost his compassion, nor his humanity, nor his mind. Growing up in 1930s Vienna, the former home of a young, frustrated, and fuming artist named Adolf Hitler, Fred was the stepson of a dedicated Social Democrat. As such, he grew up with a visceral and deep dislike and distrust of their rival parties, including the National Socialists, or ?Nazis.? Although the political situation in Austria throughout the 1930s was stormy, the German annexation of Austria absolutely ended effective opposition to the ?New Order.? Attracted by the superficial benefits of unity with Germany and the evident achievements of the Nazis, young Alfred gradually parted ways with his stepfather. He performed his duty to the Reich when called up for service in the Reich Labor Corps, and later proudly served in the most elite division of the German Army in World War II, Panzer-Grenadier Division "Grossdeutschland" ("Greater Germany"). From 1942 forward, Fred saw more than his share of combat. Starting with action as a member of a hurriedly-armed labor detachment in the famous British naval and commando raid at St. Nazaire, France, in March 1942, Fred later joined the Grossdeutschland Division in time to participate in some of the most well-knownand most bloody battles of the war on the Eastern Front. During the Germans? last great offensive in the Soviet Union in 1943, Fred fought at Poltava and in the titanic clash of thousands of tanks at Kursk. Wounded there, he later returned to his unit and fought in the long series of fiercely-contested defensive battles that ended only when the Soviets occupied much of eastern and central Germany and Austria. . . and when Hitler and the Thousand Year Reich were finally destroyed. Like so many members of German units, Fred was happy to surrender to the US Army at the end of the war, but under the terms of inter-Allied agreements reached months before, units which had fought only against the Soviets were turned over to the Red Army, en masse. Thus began the ordeal after the ordeal?2? years in Soviet prison camps.After being freed from captivity by the Soviets, Fred eventually escaped the old world and the old conflicts . . . and started a new life in the United States, free of the competing "isms" of Europe that had wreaked misery on millions.Supported by detailed commentary by author/historian Marc Rikmenspoel, The Good Soldier contains 62 illustrations, including original diagrams and sketches drawn before the war and during the author's captivity; comprehensive documentary authentication of the author's military service; and extensive wartime photography.

This early work by Ford Madox Ford was originally published in 1915 and we are now republishing it with a brand new introduction. Ford Madox Ford was born Ford Madox Hueffer in Merton, Surrey, England on 17th December 1873. The creative arts ran in his family – Hueffer's grandfather, Ford Madox Brown, was a well-known painter, and his German émigré father was music critic of The Times – and after a brief dalliance with music composition, the young Hueffer began to write. Although Hueffer never attended university, during his early twenties he moved through many intellectual circles, and would later talk of the influence that the “Middle Victorian, tumultuously bearded Great” – men such as John Ruskin and Thomas Carlyle – exerted on him. In 1908, Hueffer founded the English Review, and over the next 15 months published Thomas Hardy, H. G. Wells, Joseph Conrad, Henry James, John Galsworthy and W. B. Yeats, and gave débuts to many authors, including D. H. Lawrence and Norman Douglas. Hueffer's editorship consolidated the classic canon of early modernist literature, and saw him earn a reputation as of one of the century's greatest literary editors. Ford's most famous work was his Parade's End tetralogy, which he completed in the 1920's and have now been adapted into a BBC television drama. Ford continued to write through the thirties, producing fiction, non-fiction, and two volumes of autobiography: Return to Yesterday (1931) and It was the Nightingale (1933). In his last years, he taught literature at the Olivet College in Michigan. Ford died on 26th June 1939 in Deauville, France, at the age of 65.

"The Good Soldier: Running on the Road of Hope "is the life story of author Elie Hasbani. Born in Lebanon, Elie, as the firstborn son, held a position of privilege and entitlement, dictated by the cultural tradition within which he was raised. He could do no wrong from his family's perspective and was given anything he wanted. With the position of first son, however, also came responsibilities and expectations that Elie found difficult to fulfill. He wanted the privileges, but not always the responsibilities; and so, he began at a young age to run, not away, but through the questions with which he continually wrestled. Elie's protected world was turned upside down when war broke out in Lebanon. As a young man, he stepped in to defend his beloved Lebanon and became embroiled in the twists and turns of a complicated political and military situation. Within this chaos, God began to work in Elie's life to answer some of the questions that plagued him; through what most would view as a tragic event, God would change Elie's life forever.

« Ford is an irresponsible writer, in the sense that you cannot rely on the accuracy of his statements » (C.H. Sisson). Écrivain irresponsable, peut-être, Ford Madox Ford est sans nul doute un écrivain qui insiste sur l'impossibilité radicale de l'exactitude. Puisant dans la diversité des pensées de l'évolution, de la prolifération des points de vue, du flux existentiel et des apories de la connaissance, il compose The Good Soldier comme un exemple de sa théorie personnelle du « coeur » malade de la civilisation occidentale. Cartographiant le paysage mental fordien en même temps que le roman, cet ouvrage vise à mettre en lumière les problématiques modernistes qui font de The Good Soldier le lieu de cristallisation, dans le pessimisme et l'ironie, des angoisses de l'artiste face à la modernité. Hélène AJI est maître de conférences habilité à diriger des recherches à l'université de Paris-Sorbonne (Paris IV). Spécialiste du modernisme, elle est l'auteur de nombreux articles en poésie américaine, ainsi que de deux ouvrages : Ezra Pound et William Carlos Williams : pour une poétique américaine (L'Harmattan, 2001) et William Carlos Williams : un plan d'action (Belin, 2004). Son travail sur Ford Madox Ford s'inscrit dans une réflexion sur les milieux modernistes cosmopolites dans le Londres du début du XXe siècle. Cet ouvrage est le fruit de la collaboration entre les éditions Armand Colin et le Centre National d'Enseignement à Distance, établissement public d'enseignement qui dispense des formations de tous niveaux à plus de 350 000 inscrits répartis dans le monde entier. Cette contribution scientifique d'enseignants chercheurs de l'Université française s'intègre dans les préparations assurées par le CNED aux CAPES et aux agrégations d'anglais qui comprennent aussi des conseils méthodologiques et des entraînements aux épreuves des concours avec correction personnalisée.

The Good Soldier contains the distilled wisdom of Field Marshal Wavell, collected from his numerous articles and speeches. “Practically all the articles collected here were written between the two Great Wars, between 1926 and 1938; a few were written during the late war. Nearly all have been previously published, in newspapers or military journals. Whether they are worth collection and republication I must leave readers to judge. Inoculation with the deadly virus of war does not seem to confer immunity on any people or on the world as a whole for more than a very limited period. There must still be soldiers, and I fear there will still be wars in spite of UNO and ATOM. So long as war has to be studied there may be something of value in these notes of one who has studied war for close on fifty years. That is my only excuse for re-enlisting these old soldiers of my pen. Some of them may be thought old-fashioned and out of date, with little more to tell the modern student of war than would a visit to the pensioners of Chelsea Hospital. But passing down their ranks and looking them over with, I admit, an indulgent eye, I still believe that there may be something in each of these veterans, or at least in some of them, to induce thought and perhaps to sow the germ of a fresh idea. If I can claim to any merit as a soldier, it is that I have always tried to keep my mind receptive to fresh ideas, and that I have striven to present these ideas in as simple and practical a form as possible—in battle dress rather than in review order. If these old soldiers of mine can in any way help a young soldier to learn his trade—the training and handling of men in circumstances of great complexity and difficulty—they will not have come back from the Reserve in vain.”—Author’s Preface, 1946
