    Thorpe's elegant sympathetic but not uncritical biography of the late prime minister does justice to the man and the great hinterland martial intellectual and social which underpinned his political lifeAfter Churchill Macmillan's story is probably the most fascinating of any 20th century premier This Thorpe celebrates while never forgetting the triumphs and eventual failure of his time at Number Ten


  2. says:

    This massive read gives a fascinating insight into one of the last century's most successful politicians I was left marvelling at his cleverness and his ruthlessness He benefitted from the Suez debacle yet was one of those most responsible for it His relationship with his wife was extraordinary It casts light on other figures of the time including Churchill and the great man's one liners still raise a smile

    This is a rather excellent biography of Macmillan It is balanced and unbiased If your looking for just one book to read about Macmillan there are a fair few to closer from I recommend DR Thorpe's bookI couldn't fault it and whilst I didn't always agree with the analysis there were no factual inaccuracies

    Harold Macmillian was British Prime Minister from 1956 to 1963 having previously been a minister in the post war cabinets of Winston Churchill and Anthony Eden He came to prominence through his success in managing the construction of hundreds of thousands of houses while Minister of Housing in Churchill's government He replaced Anthony Eden after the Suez Crisis ironically having been an early and stalwart supporter of British military attack on Egypt after Egypt's President Nasser took over the largely British owned Suez canal company He left office in 1963 after President de Gaulle of France vetoed British entry into the European Common Market the predecessor to the European Union and a series of spy scandals the Profumo case actually of sex scandal than a spy scandal being the most prominent if not necessarily the most damaging of the series A disasterous reshuffling of his cabinent at about this time made the political damage greater rather than reducing it as intended Macmillian's prostate operation for a bening tumor in October 1963 was the occasion than the cause of his resignation After his retirement he spent than a decade successfully actively managing the family owned publishing house He died in the late 1980s Macmillan's private life was marred by his wife's long term affair with his Parliamentry colleague Bob Boothby He remained in love with Dorothy and was devasted by her sudden death from a coronary in 1966 His son a daughter and a grandson also died before himPolitically Macmillan was a less free market Conservative than the later Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher He tended to be concerned about unemployment than inflation due both to his close reading of John Maynard Keyne's economic works and his experience in the 1930s representing a northern England constituency electoral district which suffered from very high unemployment His political success owed much the improvement of the economy in the late 1950s At his peak in the 1950s Macmillian was an extremely astute politician
