1st ed., 1976. Xv + 350 pp., frontis., + 27 other photo-plates + 6 maps. D.j., 23 x 15cm. Repair to front of d.j., & spine faded o/w V.G. This is the official biography of Field Marshal the Viscount Slim of Yarralumla and Bishopston; it is also, more importantly, the life of 'Uncle Bill', as he was know to everyone who served in the 14th Army. In this book the author gives a brilliant account of the Burma campaign. From the Field-Marshal's private papers and the witness of his fellow officers much is added to the record of Slim the commander; but it is the new light thrown on Slim the man that is most illuminating.
