A thoroughly good read. Full of anecdotes and stories. The volume reviews Alexandre's life work, specific confrontations and risky strategies that most of the time paid off with successes. The volume would have benefitted from more dialogue reconstructions between key participants, however the perspectives from encounters do provide hints of the dialogues that had taken place.

A great general & Churchill's favourite. An aristocrat who was a very modest and humble man. He doesn't get the glory he deserves and seems to have been airbrushed from history. Good to read his own story from WW2 He had to deal with many an ego for the good of all during the war.

As my father served under Harold Alexander during the Africa campaign and Italy but never talked about it, it was great to get some background knowledge of what happened and try to understand what they all went through and the scars it left with them afterwards.

Montgomerys Handler 23 Feb. 2013
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com

Field Marshall Alezander in my view was not a great commander. He was in my opinion the man in the shadows rather than the commnader in the spotlight. Alexander ably supported Gen. Montgomery in the desert war, but the laurels of victory belonged to Montgomery. I am not a fan of gen. montgomery, but at least he actually won battles. I cannot trulu say that about Alexander. I think this text shows how a man can be considered a great commander of men, but in name only, in my view. JRV
