Many British commanders of World War II were veterans of the Great War and their attitudes to war were influenced by this and pre-war training and doctrine. This book examins these influences and the commanders' differing relationships with Churchill. The combat careers, personalities, uniforms, dress and appearance of key British commanders during World War II, including such famous leaders as Montgomery, Ramsey and Slim are all explored. Their wartime service and leadership is critically assessed in this detailed study, packed with contemporary pictures and full colour artworks showing their varied uniforms.
