Field Marshal Sir John Durham, nearing his eightieth birthday, looked back on years of acclaim and public honor. A hero of both World Wars, and a brilliant tactician, he had masterminded the great Allied victory in the Balkan campaign, at the battle of Vojja Lovac, during the last months of World War II. He might have lived out his remaining years in quiet glory and distinction. but he chose instead to write his memoirs, and he chose to tell everything.
