This review is from: A sailor's odyssey: The autobiography of Admiral of the Fleet Viscount Cunningham of Hyndhope (Hardcover)
Despite having been written nearly sixty years ago, this personal account of Cunningham's career still reads well. He was one of the few great commanders who felt no need to justify himself, and admitted errors that he (and others) had made, and was very careful to give praise where it was due. He was also unsparing in his assessments of the faults of his superiors, all the more cogent because of his honesty about himself. It is a pity he didn't live to re-write it after ULTRA became public knowledge.
This is still an indispensible source.
