During the Second World War he served in military intelligence and rose to the rank of major.

Format: Hardcover
Gash has produced a well written clear and concise account of the Life of Lord Liverpool. From childhood to premiership Gash's work is interesting and well written. Sympathetically written, Gash guides us masterfully through the problems faced by this long serving primeminister- from trying to get married and the intervention of the king to working in threee major offices at once during the Napoleonic wars Gash provides insight and detail where there was none. Using documents and secondary sources Gash's work is worth having. A fascinating biography.

Liverpool the neglected Prime Minister 7 Feb. 2004
By Dr. Jean-marc Alter - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Gash has produced a scholarly work on the life of this much neglected political giant of the 19th Century. The book covers the complete life of Jenkinson and sheds much light on interesting issuse like his relationship with his father and political contemporaries like Pitt, Grenville, Canning and Castlereagh. A reassessment must be made of his importance after a careful study of Professor Gash's work. No other Prime Minister had so much experience before becoming First Minister and no other Minister had to deal with so many contrasting difficulties- War, Revolt, Religious Toleration, Starvation, Urbanisation and Royal intrigues! An excellent introduction to the period and a scholarly biography.
