Bought at the Methodist Book Sale 28 Feb 2009

An excellent biography; Foot writes extremely well with a touch of the Andrew Marr about his style (obviously the influence would have run the other way really) and, although it is admiring, with Foot admitting to being a hero-worshipper, it’s not hagiographical.  Fascinating background detail about the strikes and WW2 makes this required reading, and I’m already searching for Vol 2!
