Reviews

An elegantly written, thought-provoking book...an essential reappraisal of British myths since 1939
THE TIMES
The best sort of history - revealing, gossipy and acidulous
INDEPENDENT
A book of quite exceptional quality...Roberts resembles Strachey in his iconoclasm, and in the brilliance of his writing
SUNDAY TELEGRAPH
Not since A J P Taylor gave his legendary lectures on the origins of the Second World War has an historical study given me such intellectual and aesthetic satisfaction
