Rating: 6 out of 10
This is a short biography of the famous WW2 general. The book covers his early life, the war years and his long post-war career. According to the introduction, it includes previously unknown material based on a manuscript written by his 2nd wife.
I thought this biography was well done. It covered the majority of his life and career without being sensational, yet discussed what could be uncomfortable topics in a low key and respectful way. Unlike many public figures of the time, there isn't a lot of personal writing by the general available, perhaps deliberately, so compared to other biographies of public figures, this one is a little sparse. There are a few glaring editing errors and at least 1 photo is dated incorrectly, otherwise the factual information seems correct. A quick read, but memorable. This supposedly does contain some information that is unflattering to the general that is relatively 'new', I can't speak to how new the information is, but it was presented in a factual way without hype. A broad overview, but not bad.
