English military strategist and writer, 1895-1970, author of A History of the World War, 1914-1918, A History of the Second World War and other works

Fishburn and Hughes: A British military historian, author of a history of World War I, first published in 1930 as The Real War, 1914-1918. The second edition, published in 1934, was called A History of the World War, 1914-1918 Liddell Hart's account of the battle of the Somme, in whose department both the river Ancre and the 'city called Albert' are to be found, was written while he was convalescing from wounds received during the campaign. Reference is made to an attack by the British 13th Division which had been postponed from 29 June to 1 July 1916; there is no mention of rain having fallen before the battle. The long bombardment which preceded the attack destroyed all chances of surprise, and it failed with heavy British losses. Only in the area Fricourt /Montauban did the British gain ground against the German defences. The exact page reference given in different editions (p. 22 and 242) is controversial, and may relate to Borges’s use of two different edition of Liddell Hart’s book. The Garden of Forking Paths
