PostSir George Dixon Grahame, Diplomatic Giant (Angel Vinas, Belgium, 03/23/21 4:17 am)
Silvia Ribelles' post on her biography of Sir George Grahame is very welcome indeed. I'm looking forward to reading it.
I first become aware of Sir George's doings in Spain when I wrote La conspiración del General Franco in 2011. The second chapter dealt with British policies towards the Second Republic from 1931-1936. Sir George appeared to me as a diplomatic giant (physically he was one, the tallest man in the British foreign service). His successor, Sir Henry Chilton, was a disgrace. Sir George has always figured prominently in my books about the Republic in peace. Even in the latest one.
My most sincere congratulations to Silvia. I hope her work will also appear in English.
JE comments: I second your congratulations, Ángel! Sir George Dixon Grahame must have stood a good six inches over six feet. I found this photo for comparison: Sir George is pictured between, and dwarfs, two icons of the Great War: Field Marshal Douglas Haig (left) and Admiral David Beatty.
