In this forthright and impressive autobiography Field-Marshal Montgomery, as one would expect, expresses himself quite sharply about many of his political and military associates, British and American. There is no rancor, however, but evidence of real warmth and affection in this formidable soldier. While much of the book deals with the war years it also has something of interest to say about the postwar period when he was Chief of the Imperial General Staff.
