About the Author

General Andre Bourachot is a leading expert on the history of the French army. He entered the military school at Saint-Cyr in 1958 and decided to specialize in engineering. During his long career he served in various roles - as a staff officer, instructor and commander. He left the French army in 1998 as Engineer in Chief. He is a former student of the Centre for Advanced Military Studies and of the Institute for Advanced National Defence Studies in Paris, and he has an engineering degree from the Ecole Nationale des Ponts et Chaussees. He is married and is the father of two children. In addition to Joffre, he has written a two-volume history of the French army, De Sedan a Sedan, 1870-1918 and De Sedan a Sedan, 1918-1940.


"Bourachot, a general and specialist in the French army, traces the period when General Joseph Jacques C'saire Joffre was Chief of the General Staff and Commander-in-Chief designate for France prior to and during World War I, from 1911 until his removal and appointment as Marshal of France in 1916. He documents the events of his military career and why he made the decisions he did while in power, including his appointment and criticisms of him, the responsibility he held for drafting the regulations and for the development of the French army's doctrine, the development of the war plans, problems he faced in preparing for the war, the Battle of the Frontiers, the relationship between Joffre and Gallini, the events of 1915-1916, the Battle of Verdun, the political campaign against him, and the dismissal of his generals."--ProtoView
