A portrait of Field Marshal Viscount Montgomery of Alamein Born 100 years ago this week, he was perhaps the most celebrated and controversial general of the Second World War. Victor of Alamein, he went on to command the D-Day landings and accept the German surrender in 1945. He was brilliant and ruthless as a commander and, as a man, vain, arrogant and, beneath the hard exterior, deeply emotional. Nigel Hamilton ,
Montgomery's official biographer, tells Monty's story with the help of his family, friends and army colleagues and with newsreel film of the time. It is a surprising and personal account of a man whose life came to have two central themes - love and war. Research SANDRA JONES
