Glendinning are that he is a tough,
unsympathetic man.

        He speaks contemptuously of the
        Irish men he has been assigned,
        calling them ‘illiterate peasants,
        rascals and schoolboys’.


 Major Glendinning is determined to
 turn them into soldiers as quickly as
 possible.
When he is telling
Major Glendinning’s        Alec about an
primary concern is      upcoming attack, he
the outcome of the        says that “There
       war .             must be no flaw in
                          the machinery”.




                          He blames Alec’s
 Major Glendinning
                        Irishness for the fact
  believes that the
                          that he is friendly
 Irish are an overly-

 emotional race and

                        advice on the subject
    unfit to govern
                         of men and officers
     themselves.
                             fraternising.

of Alicia Moore.                   Crowe.
As the Major is not the
     type of person to           It is easy to view
    tolerate failure or        Major Glendinning
