This is an auction for EL ALAMEIN TO THE RIVER SANGRO by FIELD-MARSHAL BERNARD MONTGOMERY.

"Field Marshal Montgomery commanded the Eighth Army from 13th August 1942 until the 31st December 1943, and the 21st Army Group from 1st January 1944 until the German surrender on the 5th May, 1945. Whilst in command of the British Army of the Rhine, in occupation of Germany, shortly after the end of the Second World War Montgomery set out to record the exploits and victories of the troops under his command. This volume is a superb example of military history as presented by one of the greatest generals to command victorious armies in the field. The text is taken from his personal war diaries and is distinguished by his incisive style. The whole strategy and course of the campaigns is presented with great clarity. El Alamein to the River Sangro is as he himself writes `... an authoritative account of the activities of the Eighth Army in the days of its greatest, successes’. El Alamein was the turning point in the war: from that momentous battle the tide against Germany turned. During the time the Eighth Army was commanded by Monty it lost not a single action, and when Monty was transferred to Europe in December 1943, Winston Churchill wrote to him: ‘The immortal march of the Eighth Army from the gates of Cairo along the African shore, through Sicily, has now carried its ever victorious soldiers far into Italy towards the gates of Rome. The scene changes and vastly expands. A great task accomplished gives place to a greater, in which the same unfailing spirit will win for all true men a full and glorious reward.’

Hardback 1944.
