Summary (From the publisher):

The first major biography in over thirty years of the man who replaced Edward VIII on the empty British throne.

After his older brother abdicated to marry Wallis Simpson, the younger George (born Albert) assumed the throne at a crucial time in history, with Hitler and Mussolini allied and Europe moving inexorably towards war.

Born to be the spare to the heir, a shy, somewhat delicate man, George VI had what his elder brother did not -- a profound sense of duty, a happy marriage, and two well-loved children.

It is an 'insider's' account -- what was he like, how did the family behave, how did they live, how did they seem to their contemporaries?
