Synopsis: Born in 1926, General Sir Frank Kitson was commissioned into the army soon after the end of World War II and retired 40 years later in 1985. This book tells his story. In the course of his service he spent many years with aromoured formations in Germany, culminating in the command of an armoured division. He also took part in counter-insurgency and peace-keeping activities in Kenya, Malaya, Oman, Cyprus and Northern Ireland and held staff appointments in the Ministry of Defence. He spent the final three years of his service as Commander in Chief of the United Kingdom Land Forces.

About the Author: General Sir Frank Kitson GBE, KCB, MC and Bar was commissioned in the army soon after the end of the Second World War. In the course of his service he spent many years with armoured formations in Germany, culminating in command of an armoured division. He also took part in counter-insurgency and peace-keeping activities in Kenya, Malaya, Oman, Cyprus and Northern Ireland and held staff appointments in two of the most influential departments in the Ministry of Defence. He retired in 1985, having spent the final three years of his service as Commander-in-Chief United Kingdom Land Forces. His sometimes controversial writings on military subjects - notably Low Intensity Operations (reissued by Faber Finds in 2010, along with Directing Operations and Bunch of Five) - remain highly relevant and continue to be widely read and to provoke strong opinions. In retirement, he has given evidence to the Saville Inquiry into Bloody Sunday in Northern Ireland.General Sir Frank Kitson GBE, KCB, MC and Bar was commissioned in the army soon after the end of the Second World War.

Book Description Faber & Faber, London, 1971. Book Condition: Very Good. Dust Jacket Condition: Very Good. 1st. Edition. 208pp, index. VG++ in VG+ dustjacket. When the book was published in 1971, the US was losing an insurgency in Vietnam, and Great Britain was in its final stages as a colonial power. By that point, Britain had participated in more than 30 low intensity operations, and had been unsuccessful in most of them. Kitson, a veteran of many, decided to put his thoughts on paper as to how he thought these battles could be won. With service in Kenya during the anti-Mau Mau campaign, Malaya, Muscat and Oman, and Northern Ireland behind him, Brigadier Kitson is eminently qualified to tackle this subject. VG++/VG+. L46.
