To War with Whitaker : the Wartime Diaries of the Countess of Ranfurly, 1939-1945
by Hermione Ranfurly
A lovely book, full of humour and pathos. The diaries document her travels and travails through Africa, Egypt, the Middle East and Italy during WW2 working with SOE and staff officers. Highly recommended to the reader who wants insider background to some of the more important events and personalities of the war. As an example, one evening she sat next to Eisenhower at dinner. He was rude to her, but apologised the following day and asked her out. She turned him down.
