    1. This is Monty in his own words and is extremely valuable to the scholar or historian who wants to better understand the man and his war record Of course, as a memoir this work must be read with due skepticism However, Montgomery can be very frank and self deprecating at times Like most memoirs, Montgomery uses this work to forward his own agenda and his versions of events, and noticeably skips some events all together the Battles on the Sangro River in late 1943, for example Also, at the time th [...]


    2. This is an absolutely fascinating read that follows Montgomery s career from his early years at school and the Army Academy to his days in active service with the army and at Whitehall The writing is eloquent and readable and really feels as if he is speaking directly to you, recounting all the decisions he made both bad and good , the actions he took and the misdemeanors he got up to during his life This is not only a superb insight into the workings of the army during the years following the F [...]




    3. This book is a fascinating insight into a mind of an important historical figure The story of Montgomery s life, told in his own words is a fascinating read, both for its content and form Montgomery is not a writer that much is clear He hasn t the eloquence or style that Churchill had Fortunately, Montgomery doesn t try to be something he is not and just tells the story in an honest and straightforward way From his childhood to strategic victories, he is clear about what he thinks about somethin [...]


    4. In his own inimitable way, Field Marshal Bernard Montgomery relates his life as a soldier in service to his country both in peace and during the First and Second World Wars which lasted 50 years 1908 58 Born in Britain in 1887, Montgomery spent his early years in Tasmania, where his father, an Anglican priest, worked for a time While Montgomery considered his father one of the prime influences in his life along with his wife, Winston Churchill, and Dwight Eisenhower , he makes clear that there w [...]


    5. While obviously self serving as memoirs often are , Viscount Montgomery s account offers the reader a unique perspective of the Anglo American alliance during the Second World War unencumbered by Cold War politics Montgomery emerges as an officer whose concern for his subordinates and the soldier at large appears genuine In this reviewer s opinion, this contention if true abates detractors arguments that the Field Marshal was timid, only launching offensives when the outcome was certain However, [...]



    6. This book is written by Montgomery himself This is a story of his past life during his younger days, growing up as a normal kid in London and his illustrious career in the Army A truly fascinating biography Who could guess once a wayward cadet at Sandhurst rose to be the highest rank in the British Army


    7. Entirely self congratulatory, Monty s Memoirs are nonetheless insightful in a leader s desirable and not so desirable qualities.
