During those anxious, exhilarating years, he was, as The Times of London wrote, the most unstuffy of great commanders, who could be found sitting cross-legged, jacketless, pipe smoldering, answering questions on a desert airstrip.After the war, promoted to five-star rank and elevated to the peerage as Lord Tedder, he was made Chief of the Air Staff, holding this appointment for longer than anyone since his time: four critical years (from 1946 to 1949) that saw the tragic start of the Cold War and the inspiring achievement of the Berlin Airlift.

In 1950, he became Britains NATO representative in Washington: a year that saw the start of a hot war in Korea that threatened to spread around the globe.In retirement, Tedder served as Chancellor of Cambridge University, Vice-Chairman of the British Broadcasting Corporations Board of Governors and Chairman of the Standard Motor Company. He also famously produced one of the most valuable memoirs of the Second World War.This book provides the first comprehensive account of a great commanders public career and uses hundreds of family letters to portray a private life, both joyful and tragic.
