About the Author

Piers Brendon is the author of a dozen books, including biographies of Churchill and Eisenhower, and The Windsors, Hawker of Morwenstow and, most recently, The Dark Valley, a hugely acclaimed history of the 1930s, which are all available in Pimlico. He also writes for television and contributes regularly to the national press. He is a Fellow of Churchill College, Cambridge.


Dr Piers Brendon is a courageous and independent man, and this book is notable not only for its own merits, which are considerable, but as a sign of liberation for future biographical writers. The message is this. Biographies have been getting longer, and can, without loss, with positive gain, become shorter- The book leaves one with two hopes. One, that Brendon will write more like it, two, that other biographers will start examining his model.' -- C. P. Snow
Supremely readable and entertaining. -- Robert Blake
Piers Brendon's brilliant pen portraits of four famous figures of the Edwardian age- Here in sharp focus is all you ever wanted to know about them. Hilarious and sometimes not a little alarming.' -- Robert Morley, * Evening News *
