1st ed., 1958. 574 pp., frontis., + 47 photo-plates + 14 maps. D.j, 23 x 15cm. FINE. This is an autobiography of Field-Marshal Montgomery from his boyhood to his retirement. It contains his personal account of the long road which started so valiantly at Alamein and led through Egypt, Libya, Tunis, Sicily, Italy, France, the Low Countries, Germany, to the very shores of the Baltic. In his account for the great campaign of the liberation of Occupied Europe the author puts on record much of the Montgomery-Eisenhower correspondence which makes this book of outstanding importance. Lastly come the many chapters devoted to the state of post-war Europe and to the seven years in which the author served as Deputy Supreme Allied Commander in Europe. The whole structure of NATO itself is subjected to a searching criticism.
