Macksey was commissioned in the Royal Armoured Corps and served during the World War II (earning a Military Cross). Macksey later wrote the (authoritative) biography of Hobart. Macksey gained a permanent commission in 1946, was transferred to the Royal Tank Regiment in 1947, reached the rank of major in 1957 and retired from the Army in 1968. Amongst many other books, Macksey wrote two volumes of alternate history, one, entitled Invasion, dealt with a successful invasion of England by Germany in 1940 and the other describing a NATO–Warsaw Pact clash in the late 1980s. In "The Partisans of Europe In the Second World War" Macksey takes a detailed look at partisan activities in the European theater of operation during World War II. The book predominantly focuses on activities of the French resistance movement with other organizations treated to a lesser extent. Condition: Very good / Good.
