Tall 8vo. In maroon cloth covers with gilt to spine. With dustwrapper. In very good condition in good dustwrapper (dw; Slightly rubbed along top edge with small tear and crease at back. Not price clipped). Mild foxing to edges. Else a clean and tight copy. 574pp. Many photo plates & 14 maps. One of the key military memoirs of the twentieth century, this is as much an autobiography as a soldier’s account of war. Written entirely by ‘Monty’ himself (in pencil, as so many of his official communications were composed), this characteristically straightforward (and often politically outspoken) account covers boyhood, early service, World War II, and the Cold War years.
