Description - Long Ago (and Far Away) by Baron Philippe Lambert

The powerful Lambert family, founders of Banque Lambert and a branch of the Rothschild dynasty, had an indelible influence on both the industrialization of modern Belgium and the course of twentieth-century European banking. The late Baron Philippe Lambert, grandson of the banking scion, has written an epic tale recounting the rise and fall of the illustrious financial institution - at its apex the second-largest bank in Belgium - alongside intimate memories of the daring personalities involved, particularly a tender yet unflinching profile of his ambitious older brother, Leon, the last Lambert to manage the bank. Philippe's colourful, and often humorous, anecdotes reveal the mixed blessings of being born under the star of great wealth as well as the struggle to keep a family business afloat through the vagaries of world wars.
