NIVELLE Robert of Verdun
 

Extract from Encylopaedia Britannica (follow link for full article):

Robert Nivelle, in full Robert Georges Nivelle, (born October 15, 1856, Tulle, France—died March 23, 1924, Paris), commander in chief of the French armies on the Western Front for five months in World War I. His career was wrecked by the failure of his offensive in the spring of 1917.

Nivelle graduated from the École Polytechnique in 1878, served in Indochina, Algeria, and China as an artillery officer, and was made a general of brigade in October 1914 after World War I began. In 1915 he rose to command a division and then the III Corps, which helped stem the German offensive at the Battle of Verdun early in 1916. In May 1916 he succeeded General Philippe Pétain as commander of the Second Army at Verdun. His use of creeping artillery barrages in two dazzlingly successful French counterattacks there (October, December 1916) enabled the French to retake nearly all the ground gained by the Germans over the previous six months.

That December Nivelle was promoted over many senior officers to succeed General Joseph Joffre as commander in chief of the French armies. He then proclaimed that his methods at Verdun could win the war. David Lloyd George, the British prime minister, heartily subscribed to Nivelle’s advocacy of frontal assaults carried out in close coordination with massive artillery bombardments, and he placed the British armies in France under Nivelle’s command for his great offensive. Nivelle, however, steadily lost the confidence of his own chief subordinates, and his final offensive on the Aisne front (April 1917) failed to break through German lines and cost France 120,000 casualties. The next month there were widespread mutinies in the French armies. On May 15, 1917, Nivelle was replaced by Pétain as commander in chief, and in December 1917 he was transferred to North Africa.

Extract from Bond Of Sacrifice: Officers Died In The Great War 1914-1916, Volume 2, page 479-480:

CAPTAIN CECIL FRANCIS HARVEY TWINING, 3rd (RESERVE) (attd. 1st) BATTN. HAMPSHIRE REGIMENT, was the eldest son of Mr. and Mrs. Herbert Haynes Twining, of 48, Ennismore Gardens, S.W.

He was born on the 2nd August, 1885, at 7, Stanhope Street, Hyde Park, London, W., and was educated at Hazelwood, Limpsfleld, and at Eton. He received his commission as 2nd Lieutenant in the 3rd Battalion Hampshire Regiment from the Militia in April, 1904, becoming Lieutenant in November, 1908, and Captain in September. 1914. For active service in the War with Germany Captain Twining was attached to the 1st Battalion of his Regiment, which he joined at the Aisne. He was wounded at Messines in a night attack on the 1st November, 1914, and was invalided home, but rejoined his Battalion in March, 1915, and was killed in the second battle of Ypres on the 3rd May, 1915. He was buried four miles north-east of Ypres, about a mile from Zonnebeke.

A brother officer writes of him: "His death was a great shock to all of us in the company, as he was loved by officers and men alike. The men of his company were very fond of him and would have followed him anywhere ; his thought was always for their safety, and I don't think he paid enough attention to his own."

He was a member of various cricket clubs, including the M.C.C., Free Foresters, Eton Ramblers, Butterflies, and Hampshire Hogs. He was also a member of the Conservative and Prince's Clubs, and of the Stoke Poges and East Brighton Golf Clubs.

Captain Twining married Dorothy Elizabeth, daughter of Charles E. N. Charrington, of Frensham Hill, Surrey.
