Zitat
"'At last. A truly magnificent biography of the most incorrigible of empire-builders. Victoria Glendinning has produced a judicious and utterly compelling account of the man who would change the map of South East Asia' (John Keay) 'Spirited, fluent and immaculately researched... Glendinning's book, with its breezy prose and brisk judgments, makes a splendid tribute to a great British character - the kind of man who gives empire a good name' (Sunday Times) 'Marvellously readable, personally illuminating and highly entertaining' (Guardian) 'Magnificent...
