New book, 517 pages. Generally recognised as one of Britain's most popular and successful diplomats, Sir Nocholas (Nicko) Henderson was Ambassador to Poland 1962-72, Germany 1972-75, France 1975-79, and the United States 1979-82. His diaries, whether covering subjects as dissimilar as the sleeping arrangements in Windsor Castle, the developing relationship between Margaret Thatcher and Ronald Reagan, or the bitterest days of the Cold War, sparkle with humour and lively anecdote. Conversations are given as they took place. Hazards and gaffes inseperable from the roller-coaster career of a seasoned diplomat are recorded wihtout inhibition. As a respected author, he writes with ease and authority revealing what life was like behind the Iron Curtain; of the complicated four-power responsibility in Berlin; of the challenges of representing Britain in France at a low ebb in the relationship; of serving in Washington during the Carter and Reagan administration and of his close engagement in securing American support for the war in the Falklands. Throughout one gets a charming, unconventional diplomat's insight into what life is like for a member of the Foreign Service.
