Field Marshal Douglas Haig, First Earl Haig (1861-1928) commanded the British Expeditionary Force on the Western Front during World War I. Haig’s efforts breaking through the Hindenburg line during the Hundred Days Offensive led to the armistice that ended the war in November 1918. Despite his success and many accolades, Haig was nicknamed “Butcher Haig” in recognition of the two million British deaths that occurred under his leadership.
