As Adjutant-General, 1941-46, Sir Ronald Adam was responsible for the army's human resources, providing the man-power for the great battlefield generals such as Montgomery and Slim. Adam revolutionized recruitment practices and introduced scientific selection procedures, but he was also in charge of army education and promoted discussion among the troops - an enlightened policy that led him into controversy. Roger Broad's biography examines Adam's military career and in particular his achievement as AG.
