Andrew Lownie – Traitor King – The Duke and Duchess of Windsor in Exile
Andrew Lownie examines the years following the abdication of Edward VIII when the former king was kept in exile, feuding with his family over status for his wife, Wallis Simpson, and denied any real job. Traitor King reveals the true story behind the German attempts to recruit the Duke as a British Pétain; the Duke and Duchess were not the naïve dupes of the Germans but actively intrigued against Britain in both war and peace. Lownie also shines a light on the assumed love story of the Windsors with extraordinary revelations.
