I'm looking for references that provide as detailed a history of the training of British Army officers during the course of the Second World War as I can get. I've tried searching on the internet and read half a dozen books, but the best I can get is about a paragraph, which is insufficient for my purposes. I'd like to know the various steps in training an officer coming into the war in about 1941-42 direct from university, the exact training involved and then his posting to his unit, most likely an intelligence unit as a translator (he speaks good German). I am familiar with the laws on the exemptions from conscription for students but I'm not sure how these worked in practise. So any references to that would also be helpful. I know that changes took place during the war in the way officers for trained and I'm looking for details and dates of those changes. I biography or autobiography of an officer in a similar situation would be excellent too, provided it was detailed enough. Many thanks.
