"Field Marshall William Slim stands alongside Montgomery as the outstanding British Field commander of the Second World War. "Defeat into victory" is his classic account of the Burma campaign : a story of retreat, attrition and a final hard fought victory over the Japanese. Told by a commander always at the centre of events, this is a narrative that captures both the high drama and the harsh reality of war." -- Back cover
