Grey Steel. J. C. Smuts: a Study in Arrogance

By H. C. Armstrong

Barker, 1937, 406 pp.

The author makes plain that it was not actuated by any mean spirit of detraction, for he readily admits that his subject is a great man, one of the four whose wartime reputations have not been destroyed by later revelations.
