A Potomac book has done it again with ¿Montgomery¿ by Nigel Hamilton, a seemingly Lilliputian but superb military history for the dramatic and dynamic Bernard Montgomery. Before reading this extended composition on Montgomery I knew very little about the man and even less regarding his deciding role in WWII battles for North Africa, D-Day and beyond. The wealth and depth of information regarding Montgomery¿s command status, flaws and all, was impressively packed into such a short volume. Mr. Hamilton portrays Montgomery as a vigorous, animated and innovative commander but somewhat of a misfit and rather catty individual who harmed his reputation and career from the outset. I will definitely be scanning the shelves for more of these gems including Mr. Hamilton¿s own extensive biography of Montgomery and Montgomery¿s own controversial ¿Memoirs.¿
