Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
At last, we have the "full story" of General Montgomery presented in "The Full Monty." This rather large, but well organized and detailed biography is one of the most thorough ones done on Monty. With introductory chapters detailing his early life, his absent father and oppressive mother, his later interest in young men with overtones of homosexuality, the book gives a virtual blow-by-blow account of his various and sundry military exploits. It is good that the author has told the truth about "butcher Haig", the "Chateaux General," whose stupidity in planning of the Battle of the Somme; which would be Monty's first major involvement in battle. Unlike General Haig, of whom, General Ludendorff called "Lions led by donkeys," Monty was a first-rate staff officer. This full biography leaves no proverbial stone unturned nor trench unapprised in a magisterial work that justifies the applause given to this fearless, self-contained, focused man who was able, in the fog of either the First or Second World War, maintain a clarity of mind, all while directing and supervising other men with cool efficiency.
