Illustrated with B&W & Colour photographs. Illustrated / decorative end papers. From the introduction: “The greatest British army 1 commander since Wellington, the most popular British battle hero since Nelson? Or a vain braggart who wore, in the words of one critic, a mantle of borrowed glory, a difficult, pugnacious prima donna whose lack of tact upset his American counterparts, and who used First World War methods to win his Second World War victories? Opinions vary widely. Certainly Field-Marshal Montgomery — ‘Monty’ to his men and to the world – was one of the most controversial soldiers of the 20th century.”
