Description

An unconventional view of the First World War from inside the glittering social salon of Downing Street: a story of unrequited love, loss, sacrifice, scandal and the Prime Minister's wife, Margot Asquith.

The story of this fascinating character and London socialite is told with both a storyteller´s flourish and a historian´s clear head for the facts by Anne de Courcy in Margot at War. The torrid personal life of the flamboyant prime minister´s wife is pieced apart by de Courcy, revealing a saga of glamour, affairs and relationship dysfunction, all unravelling alongside the first attacks of the Suffragette movement, the swelling unrest over Irish Home Rule and of course the lead up to the outbreak of the Great War. File under the "couldn´t make it up" category
