Does anybody know of a book or article which covers the time these two sisters spent in Paris before marrying the Duke of Kent and Prince Paul of Yugoslavia? Many thanks.

A warning to anyone planning on reading or buying Panagiotis Dimitrakis' "Greece and the English: British Diplomacy and the Kings of Greece" IB Taurus 2009....

Do not waste your time or money on this book unless you really need to!

The above book is worse than what Trond says in his review. The research is actually really poor - very little research in Greece and nothing really new in terms of UK source material, with many important secondary sources missing from the bibliography, and no interviews.

Greece and the English also has little in the way of new thinking. It's just a rehash of the old arguments about the monarchy from the 1960s with very little attempt at analysis or gaining a deeper understanding of the subject matter. Dimitrakis really does not understand royalty and is actually really patronising and nasty in tone. I don't mind critical work, in fact I welcome it, as long as it's done well and takes its subject matter seriously and understand their worldview, than such an approach is laudable. Dimitrakis for some reason, hasn't been capable of this and the end result was highly disappointing.

There are also a number of typos and other errors - English is not the authors first language and it shows. For something from a publishing house like IB Taurus, I would expect much better, with much stronger editorial supervision.

What a terrible shame. I'm sure there are many nuggets of pure gold left to discover about this relationship, from the 19th century and the manoeuvres to place the future King George I on the Greek throne onwards. Not to mention the machinations during World Wars I and II.

I'm glad I only got the google play version which was $10 NZ - a physical copy would be over $100 and I'm too cheep for interlibrary loans. I would give a cautious recommendation to Stan Draenos bio of Andreas Papandreou - good on context and research if used carefully - it's an official bio written with the supervision of the family and is vol 1 in a projected multi volume bio (also it's I B Taurus again)
