Horrocks, The General Who Led from the Front, Paperback / softback Book

Horrocks, The General Who Led from the Front Paperback / softback


Lieutenant General Sir Brian Horrocks was a legend in his lifetime.

He leapt to fame as a Brigade, Divisional and Corps Commander during the Second World War where his dashing style, good luck and easy manner won him huge respect and great success.

He was happiest in the frontline and yet his victories in the field were hard won, be they in North Africa or NW Europe.

By 1944 he was commanding 200,000 men of all Allied nations who did not agree on much else but all thought highly of him. His attributes brought him success in industry, as a TV presenter and as Black Rod, in the Houses of Parliament.
