This is an auction for THE MEMOIRS OF FIELD-MARSHAL MONTGOMERY.

"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. In this autobiography we can hear Monty telling his side of the story of the great North African Campaign followed by the even more momentous battles against the enemy - and, sadly, the Allies - 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 and Eisenhower and other leading figures. His career ended in disappointment and frustration being temperamentally unsuited to Whitehall and the political machinations of NATO."

Amazon.com review:

""Memoirs" by Field Marshal (The Viscount) Bernard L. Montgomery (of Alamein) is much more than a self-promoting autobiography, it is a serious piece of historical literature that provides many insights into the man who was one of the most influential and tactically superior battlefield general officers the world produced during the 20th Century (and possible of all recorded modern history)."
