Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: George V's Children (Paperback)
I have read books from this author before and each i do i vow not to buy any more but i always do as he writes about subjcts i am interested in.
I have two main gripes about this book.
Firstly the author is always very biased towards the royal family and in my opinion writes everything through rose coloured glasses.
They cannot do any wrong in his eyes. He writes how Queen Mary is often accused of neglecting and hiding away their son John who was epileptic, he goes on to say how this is not true as she did visit him from time to time when their duties allowed.
If this is not negecting a young child i don't know what is. Call a spade a spade.
Secondly the book mainly focuses on the two elder brothers, the abdication and the life of Edward with Wallis Simpson whilst just giving lip service to the other siblings.
I think the book would have ben more accurate if it had been titled The life of Edward and Wallis Simpson.
