Why WW1 British Soldiers were NOT ‘Lions led by Donkeys’

Remembered as a futile waste of Life

The First World War is often remembered as a futile waste of life. A pointless slugging match that saw uncaring commanders send thousands of young men to their untimely deaths – lions led by donkeys. In Britain in particular, it’s the mud-soaked trenches of Passchendaele which capture public imagination. While Field Marshall Sir Douglas Haig is remembered as the butcher of the Somme.
But were British soldiers really lions led by donkeys?
