For a start, this is a terrific read, clear, concise, exciting. I will admit I struggled a bit with the opening Norwegian campaign, my confusion falling little short of those on the ground. But once we moved back to Westminster, the pace accelerated, the clouds cleared and the whole amazing saga became unstoppable.
This is proper investigative history, with the author's dedicated detection of the long - lost Lindsay Memorandum and his tracking down the few remaining eye - witnesses. I had only one query: he uses the diminutive for Alec Home, so why not for the universally known Jock Colville?
A brilliantly incisive book, to be followed, I hope, by more of the same.
