KIRKUS REVIEW

An adequate and definitive life of Francis Scott Key, author of The Star Spangled Banner. The War of 1812 given in fuller detail than usually encountered to give the background for the writing and reception of the famous verses. The book is not ""inspired"" but then neither was the subject. And since there is nothing else in the field, it should be a permanent reference book for schools and libraries.
