Product description

Review

Last year, a poll at the National Army Museum to determine Britain's greatest general ended in a tie between Wellington and Slim. This biography will do much more to tip the scales. It pays magnificent tribute to Slim in a very well-informed assessment of what he did to deserve this accolade. It is a most exciting read, full of vivid, even lurid descriptions of the sufferings inflicted by the terrain and the climate as well as by the bestiality of the Japanese enemy... [a] forcefully written biography (Peter Lewis DAILY MAIL)

readable, well-constructed and robustly... expressed (Andro Linklater THE SPECTATOR)

Precision and easy-going style have added appreciably to the historical record of `Uncle Bill` Slim and the extraordinary skill and fortitude of his campaigns. (Andrew Lycett LITERARY REVIEW)

Russell Miller gives an admirable account. (Piers Brendon THE OLDIE)
