Read full description of the books:
This book is an always interesting series of portraits of twenty of the British generals who carried out Churchill's war policies during World War II. Churchill, as both the Premier and the Minister of Defense, was probably more responsible than any other single individual for the strategic conduct of the war. Much has been written (much of it by Churchill himself - see his six volume history of the conflict) about the part he played in the formulation of this war policy. But this book isn't about Churchill.
John Keegan is the editor, and contributed the Introduction. The twenty mini-bios are written by seventeen different military biographers. The generals covered are Ironside, Gort, Dill, Wavell, Alanbrooke, Alexander, Auchinleck, Montgomery, Wilson, O'Connor, Cunningham, Ritchie, Leese, Horrocks, Hobart, Percival, Wingate, Slim, De Wiart, and Spears. There are photos of all the generals included, which thankfully put a face on each of the subjects.
Though the book can be read from front to back enjoyably, it is also an excellent reference book for anyone interested in WW II, particularly those whose interest is centered on the British contribution to the Allied victory.
