Author Biography - Norman Kirby
Norman Kirby had a unique job in WW2 - he was Field Marshall Montgomery's head of securirt and intelligence. He was also his official interpreter which as can be imagined often presented difficulties as he selected a less inflammatory vocabulary as he dealt with allies and enemies alike. His was the task of telling an irate trio of Eisenhower, deGaulle and Churchill they could not visit Monty's.
