Publisher's Synopsis

'These are almost certainly the last secrets to be unlocked about the British high command in World War II' DAILY MAIL

'Superb' SPECTATOR

'A fascinating daily snapshot of the direction of the greatest war in history by one of the key decision makers' SUNDAY TIMES

Alanbrooke was CIGS - Chief of the Imperial General Staff - for the greater part of the Second World War. He acted as mentor to Montgomery and military adviser to Churchill, with whom he clashed. As chairman of the Chiefs of Staff committee he also led for the British side in the bargaining and the brokering of the Grand Alliance, notably during the great conferences with Roosevelt and Stalin and their retinue at Casablanca, Teheran, Malta and elsewhere. As CIGS Alanbrooke was indispensable to the British and the Allied war effort.

The diaries were sanitised by Arthur Bryant for his two books he wrote with Alanbrooke. Unexpurgated, they are explosive.
