Descripción:

First edition, hardback in dustwrapper. 24 × 16cm, li, [1], 763pp. This copy belonged to a Major J David Summers, who served in the Second World War with Lt.Gen. Sir Archibald Nye, who himself served with Alan Brooke and represented the CIGS (Chief of General Staff) at the Chiefs of Staff Committee, the Defence Committee (Operations), the War Cabinet and the Army Council. This book has 1. a three page handwritten military biography of Major Summers by himself from his father's death on the Somme in 1916, through Eton OTC, and service in the Middle East until 1944, before coming military assistant to CIGS. 2. A handwritten letter (on India Office headed paper) from Archibald Nye to Major Summers, dated 1946, thanking him for his service at CIGS. 3. A note signed by Alex Danchev to Major Summers thanking him for his kind words about the book. 4. Additionally, the book is annotated in quite a few places by Major Summers with his observations on the people and events. Alanbrooke was CIGS - Chief of the Imperial General Staff - for the greater part of the Second World War. He acted as mentor to Montgomery and military adviser to Churchill, with whom he clashed. As chairman of the Chiefs of Staff committee he also led for the British side in the bargaining and the brokering of the Grand Alliance, notably during the great conferences with Roosevelt and Stalin and their retinue at Casablanca,Teheran, Malta and elsewhere. As CIGS Alanbrooke was indispensable to the British and the Allied war effort. The diaries were sanitised by Arthur Bryant and here are produced unexpurgated by Danchev and Todman. Condition: A good copy. It has been well-thumbed and read by the previous owner and has finger marks to the pages edges and a little foxing to the pages' top edge. Also, as mentioned the book is annotated to the margins. Otherwise, it has secure binding, and the dustwrapper is not price-clipped and is now within a protective sleeve. PLEASE NOTE: This item is heavy and may require extra postage. PLEASE SEE THE COX AND BUDGE WEBSITE FOR FURTHER DETAILS AND TO SEE OUR FULL RANGE OF BOOKS. MANY THANKS. N° de ref. de la librería

Sinopsis: Alanbrooke was CIGS - Chief of the Imperial General Staff - for the greater part of the Second World War. He acted as mentor to Montgomery and military adviser to Churchill, with whom he clashed. As chairman of the Chiefs of Staff committee he also led for the British side in the bargaining and the brokering of the Grand Alliance, notably during the great conferences with Roosevelt and Stalin and their retinue at Casablanca,Teheran, Malta and elsewhere. As CIGS Alanbrooke was indispensable to the British and the Allied war effort. The diaries were sanitised by Arthur Bryant for his two books he wrote with Alanbrooke. Unexpurgated, says Danchev, they are explosive. The American generals, in particular, come in for attack. Danchev proposes to centre his edition on the Second World War. Pre and post-war entries are to be reduced to a Prologue and Epilogue). John Keegan says they are the military equivalent of the Colville Diaries (Churchill's private secretary), THE FRINGES OF POWER. These sold 24,000 in hardback at Hodder in 1985.

About the Author: John Keegan in his review of ALCHEMIST OF WAR in The Spectator described Danchev as "one of the two most brilliant people [he] taught at Sandhurst". He is currently Professor of International Relations at Keele.
