The collection of wartime biographies runs from the expected winners (Slim, Montgomery, Alanbrooke) to the ornery (Hobart, Wingate), all the way down to conventional failure (Percival). These chapters add up to an institutional profile of the British Army's high command--the milieu that produced these flag officers and how well they were prepared for the challenges of world war. xvi, 368 p. : ill. ; 25 cm. A very bright, clean and unmarked copy in a similar, unclipped dustjacket. Almost 'as new'. Weight, 730g. View More...
