  • Boring!

    Very boring! Not at all as I suspected, I found this book to be poorly written, the author attempted to set up “cliff hangers” which ultimately fell flat. I would not recommend this book.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Interesting Tale of the Misuse of Wealth and Power

    It was interesting to read an account of the effort required to construct a coherent tale from primary sources especially when so many documents are missing. I can see that this book would not appeal to everyone, and I am not sure at this distance in time whether it is a tale that is particularly worth the telling, other than to confirm something we probably already know, that status and money are powerful forces. Maybe less so for the aristocracy now but there are plenty of modern examples of strings being pulled by the rich and powerful. But as the book shows, the end results do not always ensure happiness. The book also incidentally shines a light on some deeply shocking aspects of the conduct of the High Command during the First World War

    Thanks for your feedback!
