Edición: 1st Edition
8vo., First Edition, with a fine portrait frontispiece and 65 plates and maps (a number full-page) on 39, endpapers and title mildly spotted; original red cloth, gilt back, red top, backstrip lightly faded at head and tail (but all gilt entirely legible) a very good, crisp copy in unclipped dustwrapper, the latter chafed at extremities and lightly browned on (predominantly white) lower panel. SIGNED BY THE AUTHOR ON FRONT FREE ENDPAPER. With an extensive newspaper obituary and another relevant cutting 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 his times.
