‘The chapters of which this little volume consists were constructed … to render clear the line of thought and action followed by the Government of this country before the war, between January, 1906, and August, 1914’.
Viscount Haldane served as Secretary of State for War from 1905 to 1912, implementing a series of reforms (including the creation of the Imperial General Staff, British Expeditionary Force, and Territorial Army) designed to prepare the British Army to fight in a Continental War. He was removed from the post of Lord Chancellor in 1915 for supposed German sympathies, having studied philosophy at Göttingen University and prepared the first English translation of Schopenhauer’s major work.
