"Lieutenant General Guy Granville Simonds was one of the Second World War's most dynamic strategists and commanded enormous respect from British generals such as Bernard Montgomery and Alan Brooke. (This book) tells the whole story for the first time, tracing Simonds's family origins and detailing his postwar career as Canada's top military man. The focus, though, is on Simonds's campaigns in World War II. Graham takes us from the rocky shores of Sicily to the fierce fighting in the Dutch polders, examining the military and political infighting that seemed to dog every hard-won mile of Simonds's successful march into the German Rhineland." Book has tiny bump at top of front hinge. Dust jacket has minor wrinkling at top/bottom of spine, very minor rubbing. Near Fine/Very Good+.
