His description of his approach to operations and his priorities show a level of conceptual planning quite unlike any other I have witnessed through study. The interaction between his initial plans and his subordinates alterations demonstrates a confidence in command and a complete lack of hubris.
His style is one to be remarked for its openness, curiosity and application of intellectual rigour in the execution of operations.
One of the true greats, but moreover a fantastic and numerous story teller. I wholeheartedly recommend this book to anyone.
The book is about 630 pages, and is action-packed, beginning with the British retreat to Assam and ending with the rout, the virtual annihalation, of Japanese forces in Burma. It's very much a generals, high-level, eye-view. There isn't the sweat, fear and coarse language of "Quartered Safe Out Here", but there is the concern with logistics, the war-planning, the balancing of risks.
I'm sure it's true that Field Marshall Bill Slim was one of the best generals in anyone's army, and it's fascinating to get his viewpoint.
