Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 039452098X, Hardcover)When we think of WWII we often think of Eisenhower, McArthur, Patton,Montgomery, etc. Many of us forget about the Great - Grandson of Queen Victoria. He was a champion of Nationalist freedom but also extremely royal. He was adored by the men that served under him and hated by Whitehall. A great read.

A rounded, sympathetic and yet wholly undeceived portrait of the man and the many facets of his character. From his christening - which Queen Victoria attended - to his days as Supreme Commander in South-East Asia during World War II, to India where he oversaw the move to independence, to the Suez crisis, we discover a man who, for all the glitter and the gold, was nothing if not human.
