Who was Douglas Haig?
(usually) Known as Earl Haig, this British marsha was born in the shire (county?) of Fife, Scotland in 1861.
(Literally "he remembers his military past", but more likely: ) In his eary military career he served under the orders of Lord Kitchener in Sudan in 1898, and he also served in Transvaal in 1899, during the Boer war.
He was so successful in his military campaigns that he was singled out by the greatest statesman of the century (statesman not specified).
