Synopsis: The Men Behind Monty examines the role played by the personal staff in the victorious campaigns of Field Marshal Viscount Montgomery, Britain’s most successful field commander since the Duke of Wellington.

When Monty took command of Eighth Army in August 1942, he inherited the staff of his predecessor. He retained all the key members and most of them stayed with him not only from El Alamein to Tunis, but also in Sicily and Italy. When he took command of 21st Army Group in January 1944, many accompanied him to take up the most prominent positions on the HQ staff and the majority remained until the German surrender in May 1945.

This fascinating work focuses not only on the senior officers responsible for the various staff branches, and notably on Monty’s outstanding Chief of Staff, Freddie de Guingand, but also on his personal staff, the ADCs and personal liaison officers.

The book sheds light on the work of the staff generally, and on their direct contribution to Monty’s decisions, his sometimes difficult and controversial relationships with his superiors and allies.

About the Author: Richard Mead was born in Shanghai in 1947. Richard has been interested in military history for as long as he can remember, with a focus on the Second World War. His first book, Churchill’s Lions, A Biographical Guide to the Key British Generals of World War II, was published in 2007. General ‘Boy’: The Life of Lieutenant General Sir Frederick Browning and The Last Great Cavalryman: The Life of General Sir Richard McCreery, Commander Eighty Army are both in print with Pen and Sword Military.
