The sub title of this book is "The Duke of Edinburgh's Early Life and the Greek Succession" and is a fascinating book giving new insight not only into the early life of the late Duke but also into the Greek Royal Family, with lots of new detail about his parents and how Prince Philip nearly became King Philippos I of the Hellenes. The authors have done a lot of original research accessing documents etc. that were in Greek and not previously used by those writing about the late Prince. Modern Greek history is complicated, but this book gives a very clear and precise analysis. I would thoroughly recommend this book.
