An amusing little book based on the memoirs of Duncan Heaton-Armstrong, a soldier of fotune seconded to Prince William of Wied, who became the Prince [Mbret] of Albania. This ill-fated adventure was sort of doomed before it began and reading about the silly pretentions of minor German "royals" in a land that had no idea who they were is almost comical.
Aside from those tales, however, is the excellent introduction by the editor, Gervase Belfield which gives the background as well as the ultimate fate of the players in this ill-fated escapade.
Although Prince William and his wife, Sophie are rather uninspiring, Duncan is a good story-teller. Not quite as action-filled as the Zog story, but still a fill-in the chapter of the "Great Powers" imposing princes upon newly independent
Picture quality is not great, they are rare. I have a feeling that there are not many of this couple around.
