thin & sketchy,
This review is from: George V's Children (Paperback)
This is a rather thin multi-biography which reads as if it has been put together from newspaper cuttings and tells us very little that is new. It could have been so much more interesting: the 4 sons & one daughter of George V who lived to adulthood were very different characters. However, the author concentrates on the central protagonists in the abdication & its aftermath and says very little about the adult personalities of the younger brothers or their sister. There are also lots of misprints. An opportunity wasted.
