The Memoirs of General Lord Ismay
By
Viking, 1960, 488 pp.

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.
