On Tuesday 26 March 1918, Sir Douglas Haig 'lunched from a lunch-box at Doullens' at
the conclusion of an auspicious occasion.' The meeting that had taken place that day between
British and French leaders resulted in the appointment of Ferdinand Foch as coordinating
commander for all French, American and British forces on the Western Front.
Almost 50 years later, the story of the meeting at Doullens was told in very different ways by
two British historians, Correlli Barnett and A. J. P. Taylor.2 Together, these two accounts
illustrate the ways in which the interpretation of primary material (Haig's diary) can lead to
sharply diverging results.
