Jonathan Guinness, assisted by his daughter, Catherine, has written an interesting and detailed account of the lives of his forebears and he has attempted to be objective in his dealings; however, as the son of Diana Mosley, he has understandably written with less detachment than someone without a family connection might have done. Mr Guinness also goes to lengths to explain how Diana and Unity became involved with Adolf Hitler and the Goebbels family and how, in the 1930s, there were many people who admired Hitler for his regeneration of Germany, before they knew what was really happening - but this is a huge subject and not one for discussion here, and, of course, there is a lot more to this family biography than the political beliefs of Diana and Unity. For those looking to read just about the Mitford girls, the large part of the book devoted to the girls' grandfathers may not be of sufficient interest to them, but for those wishing to learn more about the family as a whole and who would like to learn more about from whom the Mitford children may have inherited their characters and personalities, then this detailed biography makes an interesting read. I do have, somewhere in one of my bookcases, Mary Lovell's 'The Mitford Girls' which I would imagine might provide a more objective view, but will reserve my opinion until I have read it.
