    Professor Norman Stone, The Times
  • A masterly work of profound research and reflection, objective and humane

    Hugh Trevor-Roper, Sunday Telegraph
  • I am full of admiration for this book. By careful research and sensitive use of light and shade, Ms Bunting holds the reader's attention through an uncomfortable passage in our history - and one which we have been most reluctant to inform ourselves

    Alan Clark, Guardian
  • Excellently researched... This an important historical document, if an uncomfortable one, in the understanding of our national character

    John Mortimer, Sunday Times
  • [An] excellent book...thoroughly unflinching, fair-minded, humane and sensitive

    Jonathan Keates, Evening Standard
