Summary
""Freyberg" is a fascinating study of New Zealand's most famous general during his most consequential years 1941-1945. With recent declassification of intelligence material, used particularly in Crete and Mareth, Freyberg's command capability can be seen in a new light. This book contradicts previous accounts that question Freyberg's competence and describe him as cautious. It reassesses his capacity for highter command, particularly under the impossible circumstances he was faced with and his having to adjust continually to new superiors with different demands. Freyberg's innovative capacity, consistent ability, tenacity, and personal bravery are highlighted during his command in Crete, the Western Desert, Mareth and Cassino. The authors examine Freyberg's battle plans and explain why he deserved to be called the "Salamander of the British Empire"." -- Inside front cover
