BYNG OF VIMY General and Governor General

£16.99 £3.99

Julian Byng was one of the best of the much-maligned Great War Generals. A courageous reformer, he masterminded the brilliant withdrawal from Gallipoli, captured Vimy Ridge with the Canadian Corps and commanded the first tank offensive at Cambrai, before playing a major part in the 100 days campaign which won the war. After the war he successively served as Governor General of his adopted country Canada, and as a successful Commissioner of London’s Metropolitan Police. This is a brilliant biography of an unjustly forgotten figure.
