1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By Mr. R. D. M. Kirby on 13 May 2014
Format: Hardcover
Given that this book was first published over 20 years ago, I must admit to being surprised that I’m the first reader to review it, because it is a very good book.

It is never easy to write a biography when the subject of the book is still alive because the writer can be subjected to all kinds of interference from that person, more so when someone was as forthright as Fitzroy Maclean who was also an established author, to boot. If this was the case (although the author, Frank McLynn says it was not) he fended him off exceptionally well.

Mr. McLynn has leant very heavily on members of the Maclean family, friends and army and parliamentary contemporaries of Fitzroy Maclean and the end result is a very fine biography of a diplomat, soldier and parliamentarian. Criticisms of Sir Fitzroy’s character are made but not unfairly; it all adds to the charm of the book.

It must have taken Mr. McLynn quite a considerable time to cobble this book together; it was worth every moment. A highly readable biography.
