Description
This resource could be used as a full lesson for Y9 or GCSE students studying the First World War and the Battle of the Somme. Students use a variety of statements about the battle to assess Haig's role and reputation. The statements are grouped into various sections, each focused on a different aspect of Haig's role in the Somme - planning, tactics, the battle itself and its aftermath. Overall, these should allow students to reach their own judgement about whether Haig deserves to be remembered as a 'butcher'.
