Auchinleck: The Lonely Soldier


Write The First Customer Review

A classic, highly readable biography of one of Britain's finest Second World War generals. Raised in near poverty, Field-Marshal Sir Claude Auchinleck became the first English commander of World War II to defeat a German general in battle: Rommel in the first Alamein in 1942. Yet this victory was dismissed and is now nearly forgotten. This complex "soldier's soldier" comes vividly to life, reclaimed for posterity, in this portrait, including his controversial role in the turbulent days of India's partition.
