Description

An illuminating memoir by the woman responsible for the Special Information Centre in the War Cabinet Rooms, as a secretary to Churchill’s wartime Chief of Staff, General Ismay. It was Astley who handled the “housekeeping arrangements” at all the major Allied conferences.

This is a very good copy of the First American edition, in an unclipped dust jacket that is edge-chipped and faded at the spine. The contents are fine.

Increasingly hard to find.
