This presents a clearer account than many on this topic. The Apendix following the territorial titles and who was holding them at the time of the holder's demise is quite valuable. I often get lost as the dance of the Duchies and Earldoms swirls by. Royle is not strongly Ricardian.

“Orde Wingate” is an excellent book. Trevor Royle has traced Orde Wingate’s history from the lives of his parents, down to his untimely death, and has also written an afterword.

Wingate was an eccentric, difficult man who was passionate about his beliefs and was, in many ways, a military genius.

His impact on Israel was immense. He played a significant role in pushing for an Israeli state. His training methods were vital in helping the Israeli Army become what it is today. It is not surprising that he is lionized in that country.

Wingate’s role in Burma during World War II was critical in halting the advance of the Japanese Army. He was an inspirational and difficult leader.

He also challenged his superiors and gained a few enemies who ruined his reputation after he died.

Trevor Royle’s book is excellent and gives us an idea of what Orde Wingate was all about. It is not an easy book to write. However, it is a fitting tribute to Orde Wingate.

At 800 pages plus index, bibliography etc, this certainly covers the subject in detail and is very readable. It would be immensely improved for the general reader with more maps (there are almost none), perhaps instead of the two sets of pictures, none of which do much to add to or enhance the text; for example a painting of the naval battle of Scheveningen seems almost irrelevant.
