Simon Scarrow. Bombs Away. The Wars of the Roses. Dan Jones. The decision to equip the army with new and rapid Lee Enfield. Since Sir Henry Wilson, the ambitious Director of Military Operations, had begun discreet talks with his French counterparts which would see the BEF integrated into the French order of battle along the Belgian border should trouble erupt. Dissenters included Churchill, who argued the BEF should first garner its strength in order to be a decisive strategic reserve, and Douglas Haig, whose predictions of a drawn-out campaign and an overall force of one million men under arms were ignored.
This fatal hubris meant France was too late to understand what was happening on its left flank and the BEF fought avoidable battles which so weakened it that it was only saved from annihilation by the fledgling Royal Flying Corps. After Ypres any hope of a Christmas resolution was gone and the army of movement would soon become a new conscript army of the trenches.
