LAST ITEM HELD MATCHING THIS TITLE STATED:
Methuen, London - first edition ISBN:0413145808, 1990. Hardcover, 6½" x 9½", with dust jacket. Ours is an ex-library copy in transparent protective covering, with usual stamps, stickers, barcode etc. VERY GOOD book in VERY GOOD unclipped dust jacket. Eight maps, 32 b&w photographs, notes, bibliography, and index. This biography is a fascinating and authoritative study of one of the Second World War's most colourful and influential figures. Coningham survived an eccentric family background to rise from farmhand via fighter-pilot to commander of Anglo-American air forces (he commanded a group of heavy night-bombers before moving on to greatness as head of the Desert Air Force). His leadership before, during and after the vital Battle of El Alamein was critical to the eventual defeat of Rommel. He lost his life in mysterious circumstances after the war and his fame was quickly forgotten. This vivid account restores it.
