THE MEMOIRS OF FIELD MARSHAL MONTGOMERY - RARE 1st ed signed


Price per Unit (piece): £495.00


RARE AND SOUGHT AFTER 1ST EDITION

First published in 1958 Montgomerys memoirs cover the full span of his career first as a regimental officer in the Royal Warwickshire Regiment and then as a Staff Officer. His choice of the Warwickshires was due to his lack of money. He saw service in India before impressing with his courage, tactical skill and staff ability in the Great War.Despite his tactless uncompromising manner his career flourished between the wars but it was during the retreat to Dunkirk that his true brilliance as a commander revealed itself.

The rest is history but in this autobiography we can hear Monty telling his side of the story of the great North African Campaign followed by the even more momentous battles against the enemy ' and, sadly, the Allies ' as he strove for victory in North West Europe. His interpretation of the great campaign is of huge importance and reveals the deep differences that existed between him and Eisenhower and other leading figures. His career ended in disappointment and frustration being temperamentally unsuited to Whitehall and the political machinations of NATO.

 

This rare 1st edition has been personally signed, in ink, on the main title page by:

 

Field Marshal Montgomery of Alamein

 

NOTE:

We are fortunate to have one of these rare signed 1st editions available. The book still has the original jacket cover which in surprisingly good condition considering it's nearly 60 years old. Overall the book is in very good condition with nice clean pages inside.

A Highly collectable item, of one of the most important historical, military figures of World War Two.
