As has been previously stated, the book gives a good overview of Military figures in World War 2. Many are not-in-depth, but any serious scholar of history should be looking at books specifically about the person they are interested in, and not using a general overview as their soul secondary source. A fantastic overview.

This book lists all UK officers who reached the rank of Maj-General or above. As a serious researcher the book gives very sketchy bios of these officers..except of course the famous generals that a student of uk armed forces during WW2 would have known. The Book leaves large gaps in the bios of lots of generals, giving very generalised info. Not sperific enough for a serious history student....alot more info can be found on many web sites now.

A good general start for someone wanting to research the leading UK military figures of WW2...but if u wanted to pad out ur knowledge of them...u would a more complete bio on the net.
