Description
A classic and highly readable biography of one of Britain's finest Second World War generals, back in print again after many years. When Field-Marshal Sir Claude Auchinleck passed away in Marrakesh in 1981, a tradition of service and honor died with him. Raised in near-poverty and schooled in the Indian army, "The Auk" became the first English commander of World War Two to defeat a German general in battle: the estimable Rommel in the first Alamein in 1942. Yet Churchill dismissed his victory, and today it is Montgomery's success at the Second Alamein that people remember. This complex "soldier's soldier" comes vividly to life in this portrait, including his controversial role in the turbulent days of India's partition. It reclaims him for posterity.
