KIRKUS REVIEW

One has learned from its predecessor -- the best-selling King Edward VIII -- not to expect the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth from Mr. Bolitho, but a portrait, critical or flattering, whichever way the wind blows, and this time it can be nothing but adulatory. The childhood of Albert, his travels, his grit during ill-health, his part in the War, his marriage and career until his accession. A full description of the coronation, but, naturally, little of his reign to date. Nothing deprecatory and somewhat impersonal.
