WW1 - Quote from British Commandant Haig:

Haig wrote in his diary, “It is too sad at this critical time to the field.”

Que veut-il dire ?

« C'est fort triste en ce moment critique [de voir ce qui se passe ?] au front ».

Merci

    Peut-être : Quelque chose (quoi ? ce qui se passe, ce qui se dit ?) est navrant/bien triste en cet instant décisif sur le terrain / sur le champ de bataille

    Le contexte manque.

    Search shows a similar sentence, dated February 28th : it is too sad at this critical time to have to fight with one's allies and the Home Government, in addition to the enemy in the field!
