Some brief overview of this book

In many ways, 1952 might be called the Year of the Generals. The entrenched ones, like Stalin and Franco and Mao and Tito, held their familiar sway. Others came to power; in coups d'etat (Egypt's Naguib and Cuba's Batista), or in honest elections (Greece's Papagos and in the U.S., Eisenhower).

The generals held the headlines; so much so that, to the hurried reader, the man In many ways, 1952 might be called the Year of the Generals. The entrenched ones, like Stalin and Franco and Mao and Tito, held their familiar sway. Others came to power; in coups d'etat (Egypt's Naguib and Cuba's Batista), or in honest elections (Greece's Papagos and in the U.S., Eisenhower).

The generals held the headlines; so much so that, to the hurried reader, the manner of a nation's defense too often seemed more important than who and what was being defended. The rise of the generals reflected a felt need for decisiveness and a longing, often unstated, for something to put one's faith in. In such a time, the Man of the Year had to be one who could restore lost faith to a troubled people, and to serve (perhaps longer than generals can) as custodian of that faith.

In 1952, such a symbol of faith was not a man at all, but a woman: a shy, dedicated, determined 26-year-old who came to the throne of Great Britain in February. It was not the fact of her being Queen that made Elizabeth II the Woman of 1952. That year had no more respect for the governance of kings than for the government of politicians.What, then, was Elizabeth's significance?

It was no more—and no less—than the significance of a fresh young blossom on roots that had weathered many a season of wintry doubt. The British, as weary and discouraged as the rest of the world in 1952, saw in their new young Queen a reminder of a great past when they had carved out empires under Elizabeth I and Victoria, and dared to hope that she might be an omen of a great future.
