[Hastings Lionel Ismay Ismay, Baron] -- A review of a lifetime of British Army service in high posts, notably that of Churchill's representative on the Chiefs of Staff Committee in World War II and first Secretary-general of NATO.

Lord Ismay, Churchill's personal chief of staff, is revealed in these straightforward, essentially soldierly, memoirs as a kindly man loath to speak ill of anyone and a solid believer in the axiom that controversies have two sides.
