A Fine Biography,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: David Lloyd George: The Great Outsider (Kindle Edition)
Like most of Roy Hattersley's books, the research is escellent and the personalities begin t take shape very quickly. LG is a difficult person to come to terms with. One merely has to read his War Memoirs to realise that. But Hattersley skates carefully through the self-promotion and reveals the portrait of a self-confident politician with a less than scrupulous regard for others. Roy Jenkins declined to write a briography of LG for various reasons, but this author has no such qualms and it is a pleasure to read. Peter Rowland's Lloyd George is very detailed and in places difficult to come to grips with. This is not the case here. For any historian of the 20th century, it should be required reading.
