About This Item
This is a first US edition, third printing, of The Memoirs of Field-Marshal Montgomery (Field-Marshal Viscount Bernard Law Montgomery of Alamein).
Montgomery's memoirs cover the full span of his career, first as a regimental officer in the Royal Warwickshire Regiment and then as a Staff Officer. He saw service in India before impressing with his courage, tactical skill and staff ability in the Great War. Despite his tactless uncompromising manner, his career flourished between the wars but it was during the retreat to Dunkirk that his brilliance as a commander revealed itself. We can hear Monty telling his side of the story of the great North African Campaign followed by the even more momentous battles as he strove for victory in North West Europe. His interpretation of the great campaign is of huge importance and reveals the deep differences that existed between him, Churchill, Eisenhower and other leading figures.
508 pages, including lots of photos and maps. As you can see, there is quite a bit of wear to the dust jacket. Inside, it is in perfect condition.
