The Memoirs of General Lord Ismay

Viking, 1960
488 pp. $6.75

This book deals chiefly, though not very revealingly, with the war years, 1939-45, when Lord Ismay was Chief of Staff to the Minister of Defence and Deputy Secretary to the War Cabinet--a position that gave him access to most of the major wartime decisions and debates.
