Endure No Makeshifts

£14.99 Out Of Stock

Product description

These memoirs of Admiral Leach span more than four decades of life in the Royal Navy in war and peace, at sea and ashore, from the final victories of World War II, through his command of a rapidly-changing modern navy, to his time at the right hand of Margaret Thatcher during the Falklands crisis. The book's topics include the last great battleship action of the war, mutiny during the uneasy transition to peace, humorous revelations about the preparations for Queen Elizabeth's coronation, sea command during a period of intense technological advance, insights into the workings of Whitehall, and the notorious defence reviews of the early 1980s.
Very good condition.
Signed Henry.
