    Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


    Ferdinand Foch, Supreme Allied Commander of the armies that defeated the Central Powers, made a significant contribution to the development of the doctrine of trench warfare throughout the First World War. Yet his name is barely remembered in British popular discourses about the conflict. Jonathan Krause analyses how Foch's tactical and operational thinking developed in the crucial period of 1915–16.
