Taken from the Records

by SIR DESMOND MORTON From Peace to War by Viscount Chandos, PC, DSO, MC (Bodley Head 30s.)

TN 1962, Lord Chandos

published a book of Memoirs, so well received that public and publishers, like another Oliver, asked for more. Here is the second helping!

The author claims to write merely to entertain. He succeeds admirably in this, but the product, even if not the purpose, goes far deeper than that. Largely from family records, the first section of the book outlines, with ingenuity and wit, the elegant life in Victorian days led by a small section of what was then described as "the upper class"; including incidentally some stimulating revelations about specific persons of no mean fame.
