Battle of Brothers

Battle of Brothers

by Robert Lacey

A Book Review by Abby Lane

Battle of Brothers is a biographical masterpiece of two brothers and their royal family. At the novel’s root, it’s a history lesson; the naughty prince who highlights the morning pages of the daily news, and the nice prince who stands in the background, guarding a personal life and kingly future, his earlier behaviors seemingly unnoticed by the press.

Robert Lacey writes a respectful accounting, drawing the reader into the narrative and keeping them connected with each diligently written word. The author has an impressive track record as a British historian and consultant to The Netflix series, The Crown. His words render emotional, sometimes humorous responses, such as “Major ‘Poker’ Bowles”, and other times poignant, depicting a portrait of care and compassion for the royal sovereigns, which include the wives, the family, and “The Firm”. I’ve always had a fascination for the inside story of the royal family, so it’s a pleasure to read a book that acknowledges a family’s history in an insightful, professional, and graceful manner.

Five stars for this brilliant novel!
