KIRKUS REVIEW

For that audience which never tires of her -- Victoria, the impetuous princess and the formidable matron in a reign that spanned 64 years. Marshall hits all the highpoints of British history -- the Industrial Revolution, the Crimean War, the Sepoy Mutiny, the Boer War, not neglecting the ample domestic life, though you may wonder whether ""in some ways Victoria is the forerunner of the modem career woman."" Richly illustrated with paintings of the royal family, political caricatures, lithographs, etc.
