When Harold Macmillan set off on the last day of 1942 to take up his post as British Minister Resident in North Africa, he did not envisage that by the end of the war he would be responsible for British policy throughout the entire MediterraneanMoreWhen Harold Macmillan set off on the last day of 1942 to take up his post as British Minister Resident in North Africa, he did not envisage that by the end of the war he would be responsible for British policy throughout the entire Mediterranean theatre of war.

Yet those extraordinary two and a half years were to prove him an inspired statesman and lay the foundations for his subsequent political ascendancy.These diaries started life as letters from Macmillan to his wife. Written at odd moments on aeroplanes, in waiting rooms or under canvas, they present a vivid picture of his life at that time with its curious mixture of crises and tedium, grandeur and hardship.

Equally invaluable as a historical document and as a personal memoir, the writings combine unique, first-hand analysis of the strategies behind this turning point in the war with incisive portraits of such figures as Eisenhower, Churchill, Roosevelt and De Gaulle.
