Lloyd George at war, 1916-1918 by George H Cassar( )

14 editions published between 2009 and 2012 in English and held by 1,220 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Lloyd George at War, 1916-1918 provides a much needed re-evaluation of this charismatic prime minister's wartime leadership. Calling on a wide range of primary sources and focussing on Lloyd George's role in the war cabinet, Cassar compellingly argues that George's reputation as the "man who won the war" was wholly unmerited. Instead Cassar shows that Lloyd George's heavy handed leadership was often detrimental to the Allied cause. From his wholehearted support for the disastrous Nivelle offensive, to his pursuit of a peripheral strategy that diverted troops away from the critical theatre of war on the Western Front, Cassar shows that Lloyd George consistently bucked the advice of his generals in preference for ineffectual and dangerous military strategies. Cassar's approach also differs from that of other studies of Lloyd George by adopting a thematic approach in preference to a chronological narrative, thereby allowing a closer evaluation of Lloyd George's handling of complex issues."--BOOK JACKET
Trial by gas : the British Army at the Second Battle of Ypres by George H Cassar( )

6 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 459 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

World War I has long captured the macabre imagination for the seemingly willful manner in which nations sent their young men to die in droves while fighting over essentially the same patch of land for four long years. The vision of those senseless deaths becomes even harsher and more depraved when we consider how many soldiers were killed by poison gas. In May 1915 the long and bloody Second Battle of Ypres gained notoriety for the participants' use of poison gas, the first time the weapon had been used in battle. With both sides realizing the importance of victory in Ypres, moral consideratio

Asquith as war leader by George H Cassar( Book )

7 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 297 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Asquith was at the pinnacle of his success when the course of his life and that of his country was changed by the outbreak of the First World War. Instead of being over by Christmas 1914, the war became a stalemate, with opposing trenches extending from the Channel coast to the Swiss border. During the initial stages of the war Asquith's oratory, tact and skill, combined with his imperturbability and prestige, made him indispensable. As the war dragged on, his failure to show the ruthlessness needed to win at any cost made him ill-suited to direct the nation in total war. In December 1916 Asquith was manoeuvred out of Downing Street by Lloyd George. Asquith as War Leader is the first comprehensive study of this exceptionally talented Prime Minister's war record. In a thorough examination of British war policy, with its evolutionary shifts and internal dissensions, George H. Cassar has defined the precise nature of Asquith's involvement and responsibility. He describes Asquith's part in bringing Britain into the war, in shaping war aims and strategy, and in mobilising the nation's resources. Because he was not the Prime Minister who won in 1918, Asquith's achievements in dealing with the problems of fighting a war on an unprecedented scale have been insufficiently recognised
Kitchener's war : British strategy from 1914 to 1916 by George H Cassar( Book )

10 editions published between 2004 and 2014 in English and held by 247 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

His second aim was to enhance the security of Britain and its empire in a postwar world, not just against enemies but also against allies." "Drawing upon a variety of unpublished sources, ranging from government documents to the private papers of leading generals and politicians, the author sheds new light on Kitchener's controversial role in the Dardanelles campaign and the munitions crisis, his efforts to organize an Arab revolt against Turkey, his supervision of operations in Africa, and his relations with colleagues and Allied leaders. Kitchener's War refutes many myths about Kitchener that his detractors circulated after his death in 1916 and makes a powerful case that without his leadership, the Entente would not have won the war."--Jacket

Beyond courage : the Canadians at the Second Battle of Ypres by George H Cassar( Book )

Det var under det andet slag ved Ypres i april 1915, at tyskerne for første gang anvendte kemiske våben mod de allierede, også mod de endnu uprøvede canadiere, som var forsvarsløse mod giftgassen. På trods af store canadiske tab, holdt de deres stillinger i tre døgn
Kitchener as proconsul of Egypt, 1911-1914 by George H Cassar( Book )

1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 51 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book covers the tenure of Kitchener as Proconsul in Egypt in the years preceding the First World War. Based mostly on unpublished sources - including government records and private papers - it not only fills a gap in the life and career of Kitchener, the most famous soldier in Britain since Wellington, but it also deals with an important but practically unknown period in Egyptian history. George Cassar shows Kitchener to be an ardent imperialist, but one who had a sense of responsibility to the country he governed. Exchanging his field marshal's uniform for the dress of a statesman, he arrived in Egypt when British prestige was at a low point on account of his predecessor's policies. He restored political stability, created conditions that bolstered the economy, and introduced a wave of reforms. Kitchener as Proconsul of Egypt, 1911-1914 reveals how Kitchener's interest extended beyond Egypt, and how throughout these years he worked quietly to prepare the ground in an attempt to create an Arab Empire under Britain's suzerainty.--
