Notes

First edition, first impression, with a signed photograph of Montgomery tipped in to the front free endpaper. Montgomery's Memoirs are every bit as spiky and controversial as its author, ruffling feathers in the highest places, and his comments on Eisenhower's leadership led to a breach in what was once a close friendship. It was inevitably, however, a runaway success. On hearing that the Memoirs had made more money than his History of the English-Speaking Peoples, Churchill is said to have remarked, "I'm not at all surprised that the Field-Marshal lived up to the finest tradition of Englishmen by selling his life as dearly as possible".
