The descriptions of the International relationships and situations of the period are positively Churchillian in their precise and always compelling and interesting interpretations. I risk heresy by suggesting that some are more informative and actually better than those of the Master. As much as I've read of Macmillan I'm embarrassed to admit that I missed his autobiography first time 'round. No Amazon, in college and all that and hadn't yet been to London to discover Hatchard's. I've already bought Vol. II and am searching for III through VI. Unqualified recommendation !
