This book may well be judged by future historians the most valuable of all relating to the latter stages of World War II. Both as participant and recorder, Alan-Brooke stood in a unique position. As chairman of the Chief of Staff for the last three an a half years of the war he was not only responsible for advising the Cabinet on Military strategy and for all the major decisions involved, but nights after night, no matter what the hour, he recorder in his secret diary the circumstances in which those decisions were stances in which those decisions were made and the argument, often heated, sometimes passionately angry, by which they were reached.
