   schema:reviewBody ""In 1940 Bevin, by then general secretary of the TGWU, was invited by Winston Churchill to join the War Cabinet as Minister of Labour, in which role he marshalled manpower for the war effort. From 1945 to 1951 he was one of Britain's greatest Foreign Secretaries - a key figure in implementing the Marshall Plan, launching the Treaty of Brussels and establishing NATO - but the strain was immense, and on his seventieth birthday Attlee moved him to the role of Lord Privy Seal. Bevin died, working on his papers, in April 1951." "Alan Bullock's monumental biography, originally published in three volumes between 1960 and 1983 and described by Clement Attlee as 'a massive work about a massive man', is here issued in a one-volume abridgement for a new generation of readers."--Jacket." ;
