Richard Haking Biography »
General Sir Richard Cyril Byrne Haking, GBE, KCB, KCMG (24 January 1862 – 9 June 1945) was a British general in the First World War. He is remembered chiefly for the high casualties suffered by his forces (including many Australian troops) at the second Battle of Fromelles, although at least one British historian has sought to defend his reputation, regarding him as an "intelligent and capable man" unfairly maligned in the popular mythology of the war.
