  • For a man with such conventional tastes and views, George V had a revolutionary impact. Almost despite himself he marked a decisive break with his flamboyant predecessor Edward VII, inventing the modern monarchy, with its emphasis on frequent public appearances, family values and duty. George V was an effective war leader and inventor of the 'House of Windsor'. George became a universally recognised figure in an era of ever greater media coverage. David Cannadine's sparkling account of his reign is enjoyable, and a masterclass in how to write about Monarchy, that central - if peculiar - pillar of British life.
