This review is from: The Many Not The Few (Hardcover)
I've just finished the book. It shines. To research so much data and to communicate it in such a readable text is a considerable achievement. The balanced judgements in the closing chapters are telling.
The book has demolished my simplistic view of the war and substituted a much more complicated, nuanced and interesting narrative. It has the ring of truth about it.
What we need now is a six-volume set by Dr North to stand alongside Churchill's history.
