"This is the first of two volumes of an authorized biography of an enigmatic British politician, but it is in no sense a whitewash. In fact, in his description of Harold Macmillan's role in 1956 at the time of the Suez crisis, which unseated Anthony Eden as Prime Minister and sent Macmillan to No. 10 Downing Street, and in dealing with other personal issues, such as Macmillan's wife's long affair, Alistair Horne is almost embarrassingly frank.
Mr. Horne's book is a fascinating record not only of a man's climb to the top of what Disraeli called ''the greasy pole,'' but also of Britain as it was in the first half of this century, all the way up to the Suez crisis. Mr. Horne spent a great deal of time with his subject during the last years of Macmillan's life and interviewed scores of those who knew him well. This is biography and history as they should be handled..." (New York Times)
