The Right Man for the Right Job
This is the story of Lieutenant General Sir Stanley Savige as a Military Commander. He was not the model of a modern lieutenant general. Savige enlisted in the AIF as a private, was commissioned on Gallipoli, founded Legacy, and retired as a Lieutenant General, having commanded a corps on Bougainville. This is not a "life and times" biography, nor does it cover Savige's life in its entirety. Instead, Keating provides a detailed assessment of Savige's command ability and style during the Second World War. This book is part of the Australian Army History Series. Hard cover, maps, illustrations, 216 pages.
