    One thought on “The Blast of War”

    1. Memoirs covering 1939-1945 include Macmillan's time as the British political representative to the Allied HQ in the Mediterranean theatre. Read in conjunction with Robert Murphy's book "Diplomat Among Warriors" (Murphy was Macm.'s American counterpart). Perhaps more detail than I wanted, but quite good. Written in 1967.
