The Embattled General

Sir Richard Turner and the First World War

Auteur/ Illustrateur / Sous la direction de : William F. Stewart

Lieutenant-General Sir Richard Turner (1871-1961) was a capable but controversial Canadian general who played a critical role in the development of the Canadian Corps up to 1917 and contributed significantly to its success thereafter. Despite his many accomplishments (including being awarded the Victoria Cross), Turner is often portrayed as a political appointee and repeated failure—representations that ignore, minimize, or misconstrue his successes as a combat commander and head of Canadian forces in England. In The Embattled General, William Stewart reveals Turner’s tactical, operational, and administrative contributions to the Canadian war effort.
