   schema:description "In his ninety-four years, Bill Deedes lived a number of remarkable lives - as a journalist, soldier, Member of Parliament, editor of the Daily Telegraph, and a reporter again. His death in 2007 was headline news around the world. In this authorised biography Stephen Robinson has unearthed, through many hours of interviews with Deedes and his contemporaries, the private side of a public man. Drawing on a rich selection of Deedes's private papers, his former colleague Stephen Robinson charts the depths and shallows of Deedes's notable life both as a national figure and as a husband and father of five. It is also the story of England in the twentieth century."@en ;
