IanB58 Posted 24 November , 2002 Share Posted 24 November , 2002 watching UK History's programme on Haig on Friday I was as usual amazed by the polarity of views. Now normally I realise that this is what makes good television but it was clear there will never be agreement between the "academics". I don't want to revitalise the Haig good or bad argument but it struck me that because of this divide it some times gets in the way of rationale debate. However I suspect sometimes that not having rationale debate is what drives forums like this. So to be provocative like the 2nd World War the Russians won the 1st World War for the Allies (even though they were defeated themselves) because of the casualties they caused and the German troops they kept busy meant the British and French survived long enough to win eventual victory.
