SLIM The Standard bearer

The Standard bearer  

RRP: £5.99
OUR PRICE: £2.00  

Ronald Lewin's prizewinning biography charts Bill Slim Ďs life from humble beginnings through World War I, the inter-war years in India to his leadership of the 14th Army in Burma. Here, from 1943-45, he led the defeated ĎForgotten Army' to victory, recapturing Burma in a series of brilliant campaigns - second Arakan, Imphal, Kohima and Mandalay. Beloved by his troops, even the gallant but unruly Australians,with whom he had an uncanny understanding, he served as CIGS, as an ever-popular Governor-General of Australia, and as Governor and Constable of Windsor Castle.
Field Marshal the Viscount Slim (1891-197O) was blessed with none of the advantages of wealth and social position that eased the progress of many army officers. With no armoury apart from his integrity, his personality and his intellect, he rose to the pinnacle of his profession as one of the finest fighting Generals of World War II on either side.
