In the course of doing this, he managed to convince some of the County Associations to make modest preparations for a possible expansion of the Territorial Force in the course of a general war. 26 The greatest obstacle to the implementation of Haldane’s concept of a locally based ‘nation-in-arms’ was the rule that neither the officers nor the men of the Territorial Force could be sent beyond the borders of the United Kingdom without their explicit consent.

But if we extend our view and acknowledge that the German military leadership acted within a complex construct and adapted to continuously changing situations we see that the German High Command was able to engage in a wide range of different operations. The battle of Tannenberg in 1914, the Romania campaign in 1916, the amphibious landings on the Baltic islands and in Finland in 1917, and, in particular, the flexibly led defensive battles on the Western Front are clear examples of this.
