Listing Detail Tabs

Throughout his career, Field-Marshal the Viscount Montgomery of Alamein was the centre of controversies that rage to this day. Against his brilliant D-Day landings and other successes must be set the delays in Italy and Normandy, the partial failure to close the Falaise Gap, his spectacular inability to get on with the American commanders and, most grievous of all, the tragic debacle at Arnhem. Yet incredibly, the inside story of Montgomery's conduct of the European campaigns has never been told in full before.

Now the Public Record Office has disgorged its secrets. Using these and other archives - many of them unpublished - together with the views of Montgomery's principal colleagues still alive, Richard Lamb has pieced together the evidence needed for a definitive judgement on Montgomery's successes and failures. Much of the material has never been revealed, shredding light not only on the Field-Marshal's controversial personality, but also on the Allied feuds and internecine quarrels that led to Russia taking so large a slice of Europe.

This book is an authoritative verdict on Montgomery's performance as Britain's leading commander in the vital European campaigns, and one that also assesses the often temperamental reactions of others - notably Alanbrooke and Eisenhower - during the moments of crisis. hard back
