During the Great War, Field Marshal Earl Haig quickly rose to become Commander in Chief of the British Expeditionary Force on the Western Front. Though subject to adverse criticism in the wake of heavy casualties in 1916 and 1917, he was responsible for the final counter-offensive in 1918 that led to eventual victory for the Allies.
