The men behind Monty

by Richard Mead | 30 May 2015
Category: World War II
Synopsis
The Men Behind Monty examines the role played by the personal staff in the victorious campaigns of Field Marshal Viscount Montgomery, BritainÆs most successful field commander since the Duke of Wellington. - - When Monty took command of Eighth Army in August 1942, he inherited the staff of his predecessor. He retained all the key members and most of them stayed with him not only from El Alamein to Tunis, but also in Sicily and Italy. When he took command of 21st Army Group in January 1944, many accompanied him to take up the most prominent positions on the HQ staff and the majority remained until the German surrender in May 1945. - - This fascinating work focuses not only on the senior officers responsible for the various staff branches, and notably on MontyÆs outstanding Chief of Staff, Freddie de Guingand, but also on his personal staff, the ADCs and personal liaison officers. - The book sheds light on the work of the staff generally, and on their direct contribution to MontyÆs decisions, his sometimes difficult and controversial relationships with his superiors and allies. -
