8vo., First Edition, with a fine portrait frontispiece and 65 plates and maps (a number full-page) on 39, neat contemporary signature on front paste-down, red cloth, gilt back, a very good, clean copy in unclipped dustwrapper, the latter lightly chipped (without material loss) at head and tail of backstrip. WITH TWO FACSIMILE LETTERS LOOSELY INSERTED. 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 with the Warwickshires, WWII and beyond (notably, about a third of the work covers his post-war career as CIGS and after). For technical military detail we look to the author's other works; here we find the simple account of a 'soldier who kept the faith'. A great read from one of the unforgettable leaders of our times. Baxter, 268; Enser, p.277. N° de ref. de la librería 23058
