Taken from the dust jacket: "Rightly described as the greatest Jewish soldier since Massena, Sir John Monash reached higher rank in the British Army, not only than any previous Jewish soldier, but also than any other non-professional soldier. The story of the most remarkable general to be produced by the First World War is told by A. J. Smithers with all the wit and wisdom which those who enjoyed his life of Sir Horace Smith Dorrien will recognize and relish once again. Though he was trained as an engineer, Monash was a man of wide and varied accomplishments who came late in life to the business of war. But his wide experience and his outstanding genius for organization and communication earned him rapid promotion until, by the end of the war, he was in command of the Australian Corps. This book is a fitting tribute to a brilliant soldier and to the men who fought under him. If, in describing Monash as 'the only soldier who possessed the necessary qualities for the chief command', Mr Lloyd George's prime motive was to denigrate Sir Douglas Haig, it does not make his judgement any the less valid."
