George VI: The Dutiful King (Penguin Monarchs) : If Ethelred was notoriously "Unready" and Alfred "Great," King George VI should bear the title of "George the Dutiful." Throughout his life, George dedicated himself to the pursuit of what he thought he ought to be doing rather than what he wanted to do. Inarticulate and loathing any sort of public appearances, he accepted that it was his destiny to figure conspicuously in the public eye, gritted his teeth, battled his crippling stammer, and got on with it. He was not born to be king, but he made an admirable one, and was the figurehead of the nation at the time of its greatest trial, World War II. This is a brilliant, touching, and sometimes funny book about this reluctant public figure, and the private man.
