Attlee* reviews Field Marshall Lord Montgomery’s** Autobiography

“Some of the difficulties he gave his colleagues and superiors were due not so much to a profound intellectual disagreement with their views as, I think, to the fact that occasionally he could, and did, behave almost as a child…even at 70 he is still something of a naughty boy.”

*Deputy prime minister 1941-45 and prime minister 1945-52
**Montgomery was one of the principal generals in the Second World War.

Kenneth Harris Attlee 1995 p310
