Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


General Montgomery led the Eighth Army to victory at El Alamein in 1942. Chief of the Land Forces in the Allied invasion of Normandy in 1944 he received Germany's surrender in 1945. Concentrating on the momentous events from June 1944 when Operation Overlord was launched to the German surrender in 1945, this book follows his leadership of the Allied offensive battle by battle. Renowned for his military skill and knowledge, this biography by Alistair Horne and Montgomery's son David, also looks at the more personal aspects of Monty's life. The authors place emphasis on his day-to-day life, his style of command, the influence of his character on the course of battle and his complex relations with his only son, presenting the human face of a man generally regarded as a rather Cromwellian military figure.
