Ian David Mitchell has provided readers, particularly those with a legal background, with an excellent account of one of the most interesting defamation cases of the 20th Century. It is a very thorough study of the personalities of the protagonists and the evidence presented in the trial. As a teacher of law with a particular interest in civil litigation and the common law, I found this book totally absorbing and not in the least a dry read.

At last! This tenaciously courageous book has finally exposed a myth, dearly loved by some people of all social classes. This myth maintains, that there are certain types of conduct totally alien to the British. And that our unwritten codex and upbringing just do not allow such corrupt, dishonourable and lying hypocracy as was used to cover up the callous disregard for human life, which is the reason for this book. Ian Mitchell deserves our gratitude for redeeming our honour, and for reminding us, that we are as human as the rest of mankind. No less, but no more.
