About This Item

This is a first edition (1974) of Leadership in War: The Generals in Victory and Defeat 1939-1945, by Sir John George Smythe VC (1893-1983). It skips through the activities and personalities of the British record of Generalship in WWII, offering a sympathetic picture of generals such as Montgomery, Slim, Alexander, Wavell and Auchinleck, and some of the people who served under them. It is peppered with references to his own contacts as well.

This copy has an unclipped dust jacket with almost no shelfwear. The 247-page book was read once--there are a couple of fingerprints inside, but it is in excellent condition.

NOTE: My quoted price for shipping OUTSIDE of North America is for surface mail without tracking. For other shipping options, please contact me.
