A controversial reassessment of the origins of the Great War
Gerry Docherty is a former headteacher and author of several
historic plays. His most recent, Lie Of the Land, told the
story of two cousins from the same small village in Scotland who
won the Victoria Cross at the Battle of Loos in 1915.
Jim Macgregor is a former GP. He was raised in a cottage in the grounds of Erskine Hospital for the War Disabled, and as a result developed a life-long interest in the origins of war.
"Thought-provoking . . . Docherty and Macgregor do not mince their words . . . their arguments are powerful" * Britain at War *
