How the Duke of Windsor Betrayed the Allies
This book is the result of the author's research into the intriguing Charles Eugene Bedaux, a Frenchman suspected of spying for the Germans in the First World War, and in whose house in France the Duke of Windsor married Wallis Simpson. Bedaux, through his connections with high-ranking Nazis, ensured that the Duke of Windsor found a sympathetic audience for his own fascist ambitions. Evidence unearthed in European archives, from the FBI, and interviews with key individuals has thrown new light on a letter given to the author's father by Albert Speer, enabling new and sinister conclusions to be drawn from the events which occurred in 1939. The book provides a fresh perspective on the true causes of the abdication crisis and tells the astonishing story of the ex-King who betrayed his own country and altered the course of the Second World War.
