I've never heard of that particular tidbit about Service, I have to look into it. The criticism I've read has mostly been pretty dry stuff. To be that wrong regarding facts is, well... Wrong, haha. Gotta look into it.
If I ever heard something about Read's book it must've been a long time ago. Feels new to me. So thank you for making me aware of it.
Edit: (forgot to write something). Concerning biographies of divisive historical figures: seems to be either that there's a lot of books about them or very few. Sure it's just a personal opinion but feels like that's the case to me.
