KIRKUS REVIEW

A one-volume edition of Hamilton's (JFK: Reckless Youth, 1992) three-volume biography, which won the Whitbread Award. This is, strictly speaking, history made personal -- which is just the way Montgomery saw it. Montgomery's relations with Churchill, de Gaulle, and Eisenhower give Hamilton more than enough fodder for a grand tale that hews to the Great Man theory of history. Epic, engrossing, big.
