About this title

Synopsis:

The author, Mountbatten's press secretary, describes the British Earl's work as the last Viceroy and first Governor-General of India

About the Author:

The career of Alan Campbell-Johnson (1913-1998) has from the outset followed the triple line of author, politics and public relations. Educated Westminster, History Scholar at Christ Church (Oxford), he served as Political Secretary to Sir Archibald Sinclair, Liberal Leader between 1937 and 1940. During this time he wrote full length biographies of Anthony Eden and Lord Halifax, the former earning him commendation of Sir Winston Churchill. Nearly four years of his war service in the RAF was spent on the Head-quarters Staff of Lord Mountbatten at combined Operations and in South-east Asia Command where he was officer in charge of the Inter-Allied Records Section. He stood twice for Parliament as Liberal candidate for Salisbury and was a well known broadcaster. He was Founder, Chairman and Managing Director of a Public Relations Consultancy acting for a number if leading British and International businesses. He is survived by his wife, Fay. "Mission with Mountbatten" is the day-by-day record of his third assignment on Lord Mountbattens Staff, this time in civilian capacity as Press Attach to Indias last Viceroy and first constitutional Governor-General.
