SPEAKING FOR ENGLAND Book review


66385
Title: SPEAKING FOR ENGLAND
Author: DAVID FABER
Leo, Julian and John Amery - the book is about the tragedy of a political family. It is a triple biography of Churchill's India Secretary Leo Amery and his sons Julian and John, the latter hanged at Wandsworth Prison in 1945 after war years spent broadcasting for the Germans. The story of the execution is the emotional heart of this moving book, a rare example of a political biography that fascinates readers even with no interest in politics. Who would have thought a British politician's son could have fought for Hitler? Michael Gove said, 'Makes a wretched existence absorbing'. 612pp in paperback with 16 pages of b/w photos.
Published Price: £9.99
BIBLIOPHILE PRICE: £4
