1st ed., 1962. Xiii + 210 pp., frontis., 48 photo-plates + various maps. D.j., 22 x 14cm. V.G.+ General Alexander was Commander-in-Chief Middle East, and afterwards Deputy Commander-in-Chief of the Eighteenth and Fifteenth Army Groups, Commander-in-Chief Allied Armies in Italy, and last, Supreme Allied Commander, Mediterranean. Sir Brian Horrocks described him as "The man who was always despatched to retrieve the most desperate situations". Here are the personal memoirs of Field-Marshal Alexander’s which give his experiences of both the generals – men like Montgomery, Horrocks, Patton, Mark Clark, Eisenhower, Alanbrooke and Churchill - and the events surrounding the Second World War in the Middle-East, Italy and Sicily, and in particular those major battles scenes such as took place at Alamein, Salerno and Cassino.
