Four months earlier Wingate had been killed at the height of his powers, at the age of forty~one, in an airplane disaster. Orde Wingate was one of the most thrilling, controversial, and enigmatic figures of World War II. Incomparable leader of men, he was also an eccentric, a mystic, a constant rebel against authority, a man who roused anger and undying enmity in some and unstinted admiration and support in others. In Palestine, where he first showed his military genius in the organization of special patrols against Arab terrorists, Wingate was passionate in his devotion to the cause of Zionism. Even today he is known in Israel as "The Friend," and streets and hospitals are named after him. In Ethiopia, where he was commander of the troops in the immediate service of Haile Selassie, his brilliant campaign of courage and bluff played a notable part in the Italian defeat. Wingate's immortality lies in his leadership of the force known as the Chindits when the British prospects in Burma were at their blackest. Wingate's individualism inevitably made him enemies. Yet he possessed in full measure the qualities which his successive commands demanded: his troops would follow him anywhere and his enemies dreaded his name. This is a brilliant, thorough, and faithful portrait of an extraordinary man with an undeniable touch of greatness. It is the truth behind the legend at last, the official biography based on three and a half years of research, journeys to the scenes of his three major campaigns, and access to the family papers for the first time. Fully illustrated with maps and photographs. Bookseller Inventory # 9161706
