Yes, I do too -- although later secondary sources can be useful correctives for any number of issues -- mistaken memories, obfuscations, and outright lies.

The Bradley autobio I discussed in another post does much of this for earlier sources, such as Patton, Monty, and Ike.

This anecdotal history is a fine read. Very revealing.


Well, I'd consider Bradley (which I've read as well. . I have most of the major WWII figure memoirs and read them in a flurry about 10 years ago, except for the Churchill which I had already read) a primary source as well, actually.

But anyway, duly noted, and if I run into it maybe I'll partake. Somehow I seem to have four books going right now.
