Frederick Boucher takes us inside a new book from Osprey Publishing on Field Marshal Bill Slim, considered by many as England''s greatest WW2 general.

I have this book,and outside of an old Ballentine book on Uncle Bill ,precious little,at least in the US. Slim was well regarded by his men,his allies(including Vinegar Joe Stillwell) and his enemy. Much different than Monty.

It's a small volume, and simply whetted my curiosity. Slim's statue,by the way, is the only one I photographed in London 3 years ago.

I think this volume is very much worthwhile,particularly as a start to learn about the forgotten 14th Army.
