I have his autobiography; published about 1968.
One hell of a good read, if somewhat lacking in certain details.
I found his critique of Dudley Pound to be interesting, and his view of Charles Portal enlightening. I do think he was another who was not overly fond of Auchinleck, though he seems to have tried hard to maintain a neutral stance.

Kind Regards RS*, Uyraell.
