Man Of War


The heroic and unforgettable saga of one man’s rise to military glory…written by one of Britain’s greatest soldiers turned writer.

Miller was a career soldier – one of the best.

He had twenty years and more of active service behind him – from the trenches of World War 1, to a riot-torn India, and from the Spanish Civil War to a heroic rearguard action at Dunkirk.

His tactical brilliance and unquestioned courage played their part in those victories.

But there were other battles he had to fight – with the old guard who despised his unorthodox methods, with brother officers who could never accept a shopkeeper’s son as one of their own, and with the women whose love he jeopardised in his determination to succeed.

This is Miller’s story – a vivid, unforgettable portrait of a soldier.

And this too is John Masters’ epitaph – the novel that only he, with his first-hand knowledge of military life, could write.

`A splendid storyteller and a master at describing battles and campaigns’ – Daily Telegraph.
