...surveys the tactics and battle experiences of one of the most controversial commanders of the second world war. His use of long-range penetration in Africa and Burma helped develop post-war special forces and elite units even as his attitude and abrasive approach made him very unpopular. Military holdings will find these discussions of strategies and their evolution to be important and eye-opening.
James A. Cox, The Midwest Book Review (January 2013)
...makes for a superb read and while does not answer everyone's questions about this enigmatic leader, does shed light on him in a way that other, more biased books have overlooked. I found it an engrossing read and a book that I can highly recommend to you.

...I couldn't put Orde Wingate down ... This admirably indexed effort deserves a place in every WWII enthusiast's library.
