The Tragedy Of Fromelles

"It is unfair to judge the Great War generals, as some still do, in the light of the knowledge we have today. We cannot blame them for failing to see the future of warfare with perfect clarity.

But the mistakes that were made at Fromelles don't fall into that category. They were timeless mistakes, mistakes that would have appalled Julius Caesar or Stonewall Jackson."
