5.0 out of 5 stars A little Gem!, 6 Jun. 2014
By 
MGR (Washington DC) - See all my reviews
This review is from: Churchill's Generals (Paperback)
I came across this in a bookshop in Fredericksburg , Virginia and it is one of the best buys in a long time. It's a classic for the amateur military enthusiast as well as the professional. John Keegan (I was one of the many cadets at Sandhurst that he taught) has gathered some fascinating biographies from a range of talented writers and produced a work that is both educational and entertaining in equal measure. The reader gets to learn a little more of the personality of each subject and the relationship with a Prime Minister at a critical time for both. I particularly enjoyed how well some of the lesser known figures are treated - I came away with a much greater feeling for Field Marshal Dill. If you wanted to define 'service' then perhaps you don't need to look much further than him? The joy of this anthology is that you can range back and forth and have the luxury of taking a break as necessary. It's a great one for the kitbag (or bergen). Great as a gift for a military relative or for anyone interested in this period.
