It tells us about the child Emil Hertzog, born an Alsatian Jew and brought up in the sheltered atmosphere of French family life. Brilliantly successful at school, in business, as a soldier and under the name of André Maurois as a writer. Success was his easily and immediately for allied to his native genius was an infinite capacity for hard work.Maurois has been very fortunate in his translators. Colonel Bramble was his first book and remains the most widely read and generally acclaimed of them all. ‘Ariel’ his life of Shelley gained him a reputation for writing ‘Romanticized Biography’ which he resented and tried to counteract in his lives of Byron and Disraeli. The general opinion is that he writes always with more charm and wit than accuracy.
