FIRST AND LIMITED EDITION, SPECIALLY BOUND AND ISSUED IN A LIMITATION OF 25 COPIES ONLY, SIGNED BY ZEIGLER AND ALSO BY MOUNTBATTEN’S DAUGHTER, The Countess Mountbatten of Burma. A wonderful biography of Mountbatten, following both his illustrious life and professional and patriotic career. The foreword, by the Countess Mountbatten of Burma, is signed at its foot by her. For this "official" biography the author was given access to Mountbatten personal archives at Broadlands, the family home, and had the cooperation of many family members and close friends, but he was subject to no editorial limitations--the decision as to what was included was entirely his.
