About this product
- DescriptionThis masterly study of generalship covers two years of intense operational activity during which Field Marshal Wavell, as Commander-in-Chief, Middle East, was at one point conducting fewer than five campaigns simultaneously. Two of those campaigns will stand in history as truly great victories, and one the campaign in Greece in 1941 as a source of endless controversy.Harold E. Raugh, Jr., has drawn upon previously unavailable official documents and interviewed or corresponded with a wide range of soldiers who served under Wavell. Raugh shows how Wavell s early experience as a soldier and budding commander were reflected in his later decision making and shrewd military vision.Although Wavell s charismatic personality endeared him to all who served under him and earned him the profound respect of his fellows, and even of the enemy, his natural taciturnity brought him into conflict with his political masters. In spite of his ermous military achievements at one of the most critical periods in his country s history, Wavell has been undeservedly relegated to obscurity a historical oversight that Raugh corrects with this richly detailed book.
