Report on Experience is a compelling memoir written by a quietly heroic author. This brilliantly written work provides insight both into the mind of the author and the prevailing attitudes of wartime Britain and Europe. Mulgan traces the Allies' path to World War II and the widespread reluctance of the population to accept the reality of hostilities. A determined man, he was appalled first by the inaction of his peers and superiors, then by the weak and unrealistic reactions to aggression. This new edition includes an introduction by M.R.D. Foot, a foreward by Mulgan's son, Richard, and materials censored in the original edition.
John Mulgan was awarded the Military Cross as a result of his wartime service in Greece. He died in Cairo on 26 April 1945.
