"The author draws on numerous primary sources, which include Dempsey's previously unpublished accounts, and the views of those who knew him. The result reveals him to be a soldier of rare distinction, a talented sportsman and a man of huge charm and intellect. It examines his methods of command and his relationship with Montgomery, his Corps commanders, the Americans and the RAF. Crucially this ... biography analyses why Dempsey's army performed so brilliantly on D-Day and examines his overall contribution to the campaign in Europe, focusing on the controversial operations of Epsom, Goodwood, Arnhem, and the Rhine Crossing"--Jacket.
