Inhaltsangabe: From the prison camps of the Kaiser's Germany and Revolutionary Russia to the office of Black Rod at Westminster; from the periods of Montgomery's Desert War to a hectic life as a successful businessman and as a T.V. presenter and journalist loved by millions - throughout an astonishingly eventful career Sir Brian Horrocks was always 'the General who led from the front'. Philip Warner presents a warm - and often humorous - portrait of this modest, likeable man whose legendary drive and courage earned him the title of 'Britain's answer to Rommel'. Devastated by typhus after World War I he recovered to compete in the Paris Olympics of 1924. Horribly wounded in North Africa during 1943, by the following year he was pushing across Europe with 200,000 men under his command. Ordinary soldiers loved and respected this daring general whose authority was so clearly earned the hard way and Montgomery's admiration for 'Jorrocks' was one of his few points of agreement with other allied commanders like Patton and Eisenhower.
Über den Autor: Philip Warner (1914-2000) enlisted in the Royal Corps of Signals after graduating from St Catharine's, Cambridge in 1939. He fought in Malaya and spent 1,100 days 'as a guest of the Emperor' in Changi and on the Railway of Death, an experience he never discussed. He was a legendary figure to generations of cadets during his thirty years as a Senior Lecturer at the Royal Military Academy, Sandhurst. Yet he will arguably be best remembered for his contribution of more than 2,000 obituaries of prominent army figures to The Daily Telegraph. In addition he wrote fifty-four books on all aspects of military history, ranging from castles and battlefields in Britain, to biographies of prominent military figures (such as Kitchener: The Man Behind the Legend; Field Marshall Earl Haig; Horrocks: The General who Led from the Front and Auchinleck: The Lonely Soldier) to major histories of the S.A.S., the Special Boat Services and the Royal Corps of Signals."
