New George V biography

Wednesday, 16 February 2022

George V is a rare subject for biography, and the advent of a new book on this king deserves a mention in the news pages. The author of this new study is Jane Ridley who’s biography of Edward VII, ‘Bertie: a life of Edward VII’ shed new light on this 20th Century king by using never before seen archival documents. Equally commended by reviewers for doing the same for George V is her new book ‘George V: Never a Dull Moment’, which surely is a playful title because George was never seen as an exciting individual. Readers and collectors of modern British history will be very interested in this new release which arrived in book shops in Britian at the end of 2021. ISBN 9780701188702
