8vo., First Edition, on laid paper, with a portrait frontispiece, 53 maps (the majority full-page) in the text and front and rear endpaper maps; cloth, upper board and backstrip lettered in black, tiny fade mark at head of backstrip else a near fine copy in unclipped dustwrapper, the latter lightly frayed at edges, a little sunned at backstrip and with one small loss (just affecting lettering) at head of backstrip. One of the most important British command memoirs of WWII. Chief of Staff to Montgomery for the latter half of the war, Francis de Guingand served first with Eighth Army (1942-1943) and subsequently with 21st Army Group (1944-1945) in one of the closest and most successful partnerships of the war. 'We were complete opposites; he [de Guingand] lived on his nerves and was highly strung; in ordinary life he liked wine, gambling and good food. Did these differences matter? I quickly decided they did not; indeed, differences were assets.' (Montgomery, Memoirs); he added later that he never regretted his decision. Given Monty's acerbic approach to soldiering, De Guingand's talents as a diplomat were nearly as important as his military skills. This was particularly true in relations with Eisenhower (who opined that De Guingand 'lived the code of the Allies'). Rare in this condition, the more so in the dustwrapper. Enser, p.475.
