Reviews

'...page-turner of a biography. Andrew Lownie draws revealing insights from his diligent research...This compelling biography disabuses the reader of any romantic notions once held, not least initially by Churchill, about Edward. Lownie paints a devastating portrait of the duke and duchess...this biography is a timely point of comparison when set against the ongoing trials and tribulations of the House of Windsor...a cautionary tale of a royal whose behaviour, values and standards squandered the respect, loyalty and pride of the people he was call upon to serve.' - The Tablet

'Thoroughly researched and compelling narrative of one of the most controversial periods in royal history.' - Andrew Morton

'Lownie reveals Edward not as a dupe of the Nazis, but an active and culpable collaborator...The list of individuals interviewed and archives consulted is formidable. The more impressive then, that this is a wonderfully readable and succinct story.' - BBC History Magazine

'Andrew Lownie has a remarkable ability to fashion a compelling narrative from raw archive text and personal reminiscence. His Traitor King (Blink, 25), about the Duke and Duchess of Windsor and their questionable cohorts, is every bit as absorbing as his earlier history of the Mountbattens.' - Andrew Lycett, Spectator Books of the Year
