The most remarkable people you’ve never heard of
‘Most of us are intrigued by the question “Whatever happened to…?”
Donough O’Brien has hit on another splendid idea: ”Whoever was . . .?” listing and describing scores and scores of extraordinary people who played an important but hidden task in the story of our times, but whom we probably never heard of in the first place. Definitely a book to dip into from time to time for an hour or more’s remarkable details.’
