About this Item: Great Northern Books Ltd, United Kingdom, 2014. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. One man s role in the Abdication of Edward VIII has been secret ever since the crisis over his love for Mrs Simpson unfolded in December 1936. Described by those in the know as a leader of Black Magic in England , he had been treating Edward for alcohol problems. The discovery that the King had secretly turned to Dr Alexander Cannon was the point of no return for the religious leaders and politicians around King Edward. He had to go. Recently uncovered documents and tape recordings show that not only was there a plot hatched to oust Edward, but that fascist Black Shirt supporters claimed they too were aware of a conspiracy involving Dr Cannon and the King Watchers - and they tried to stop it. So who was Sir Dr Alexander Cannon? And why was he later allowed to set up a clinic for battle-weary top brass military during the Second World War - despite being suspected of spying? Using additional MI5 and police documents, this is the story of the hypnotist, the King, and the clinic attended by the rich and famous who went for Cannon s special brand of treatment - and the odd sexual tryst.

About this Item: Biteback Publishing, United Kingdom, 2018. Paperback. Condition: New. Reprint. Language: English . Brand New Book. How does the machinery of government respond when a King steps out of line? The relationship between Edward VIII and Wallis Simpson created a constitutional crisis that has fascinated the public for decades. Unwilling to accept the idea of the twice-married American as future Queen of England, the government was determined to pressure the King into giving up Mrs Simpson and, when that failed, into giving up his crown. The King s phone lines were tapped by his own government, dubious police reports poisoned Mrs Simpson s reputation, and threats to sabotage her divorce were deployed to edge the King towards abdication. The hopeless attempts of the King s allies, particularly Winston Churchill, to keep him on the throne were dismissed as sinister conspiracy, whilst the King wrecked his own chances with wildly unrealistic goals and ill-thought-out schemes that served only to frame him as erratic and unreliable as a monarch. As each side was overwhelmed by desperation and distrust, Prime Minister Stanley Baldwin fought to steer events to a smooth conclusion. In this fascinating behind-the-scenes account of the royal abdication crisis of 1936, Adrian Phillips reveals the previously untold story of the hidden political machinations and insidious battles in Westminster and Whitehall that settled the fate of the King and Mrs Simpson.

About this Item: Bloomsbury Publishing PLC, United Kingdom, 2016. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. In 1936, the monarchy faced the greatest threats to its survival in the modern era - the crisis of abdication and the menace of Nazism. The fate of the country rested in the hands of George V s sorely unequipped sons: Edward VIII abandoned his throne to marry divorced American socialite Wallis Simpson; Prince Henry preferred the sporting life of a country squire; the glamorous and hedonistic Prince George, Duke of Kent, was considered a wild card; and stammering George VI felt himself woefully unprepared for the demanding role of King. As Hitler s Third Reich tore up the boundaries of Europe and Britain braced itself for war, the new king struggled to manage internal divisions within the royal family. Drawing on many new sources including from the Royal Archives, Princes at War goes behind the palace doors to tell the thrilling drama of Britain at war. Seller Inventory # AA79781408845080

Buckingham Babylon tells the complete inside story of the British Royal House, beginning in 1901 with the reign of Edward VII and its foundation in what was alleged to be a bigamous marriage, to the current made~for~tabloids scandals. It is a story of hypocrisy and excess hidden behind a Facade of moral rectitude: sham marriages and routine infidelity, irrepressible greed, treasonous acts, revolutionary plots~even murder. And casting its shadow over each generation, a manic sexuality. Among the book's revelations: The secret murder of Queen Elizabeth's grandfather, George V. Edward VII's seven thousand sexual conquests. The real reason for the abdication of Edward VIII ~ why he used Wallis Simpson as a go~between with the Nazis while he was still King and why he was removed from the throne because of his Nazi sympathies.

How the Queen's father, George VI, planned to defy Winston Churchill and surrender to Hitler. The list of Royals addicted to alcohol, drugs, sex, pornography, and sadomasochism. Why the Windsors dispatched a Russian double agent on a secret mission to cover up a Royal scandal. The Royal relatives left to rot for decades in an insane asylum while the British public was told they were dead. The rape scandal on the Royal yacht and how it was covered up. Prince Philip's connection to an international sex and espionage scandal and his rocky relationship with the Queen. Queen Elizabeth II's love for another man. The inside stories of Royal romances and marriages, including the "Camillagate" tapes and Diana's complex plot to extricate herself from her unhappy marriage. The "Doomsday" plan to rekindle the Royal Family's flagging popularity. Buckingham Babylon goes behind the Palace walls to reveal the closely guarded secrets of a classically dysfunctional family~one seemingly doomed to repeat the patterns of the past. Finally, the author puts into perspective the modern monarchy so that you will understand the role the House of Windsor played in history as well as why history may ring its death knell.

About this Item: The University of Chicago Press, United States, 2015. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . This book usually ship within 10-15 business days and we will endeavor to dispatch orders quicker than this where possible. Brand New Book. Scandalous divorcee. Nazi sympathizer. Style icon. Her Grace the Duchess of Windsor. Such are the many-and many times questionable-monikers of the infamous Wallis Simpson. And with Wallis s War, Kate Auspitz adds another to this list: unwitting heroine. The facts: reviled by the British as a social-climbing seductress even as Time magazine named her its 1936 Woman of the Year, Simpson was the American socialite whose affair with King Edward VIII led him to abdicate the throne on the eve of WWII. In this fanciful novel written in the form of a fictional memoir, Auspitz imagines an alternative history in which Simpson was encouraged by Allied statesmen to remove defeatist, pro-German Edward from the throne, forever altering the course of the war. A comically unreliable narrator who knows more than she realizes, and reveals more than she knows, Simpson leads us from historic treaties and military campaigns to dinner parties and cruises as she describes encounters with everyone from Duff and Diana Cooper to Charles Lindbergh, Coco Chanel, and Hitler-all the while acting as a willing but seemingly oblivious pawn of international intrigue. A rare blend of diplomacy and dalliance, fashion and fascists, this meticulously researched satire offers witty and erudite entertainment and leaves us speculating: who really brought about the abdication and-always-what were they wearing?.

Perhaps the most romantic documents of our time, they chart the course of Edward's overwhelming passion for Wallis, dramatically illuminating the mystery of their attraction. .

About this Item: INGRAM PUBLISHER SERVICES US, United States, 2016. Paperback. Condition: New. Reprint. Language: English . Brand New Book. In 1936, the British monarchy faced the greatest threats to its survival in the modern era--the crisis of abdication and the menace of Nazism. The fate of the country rested in the hands of George V s sorely unequipped sons: *a stammering King George VI, terrified that the world might discover he was unfit to rule *a dull-witted Prince Henry, who wanted only a quiet life in the army *the too-glamorous Prince George, the Duke of Kent--a reformed hedonist who found new purpose in the RAF and would become the first royal to die in a mysterious plane crash *the Duke of Windsor, formerly King Edward VIII, deemed a Nazi-sympathizer and traitor to his own country--a man who had given it all up for love Princes at War is a riveting portrait of these four very different men miscast by fate, one of whom had to save the monarchy at a moment when kings and princes from across Europe were washing up on England s shores as the old order was overturned. Scandal and conspiracy swirled around the palace and its courtiers, among them dangerous cousins from across Europe s royal families, gold-digging American socialite Wallis Simpson, and the King s Lord Steward, upon whose estate Hitler s deputy Rudolf Hess parachuted (seemingly by coincidence) as London burned under the Luftwaffe s tireless raids. Deborah Cadbury draws on new research, personal accounts from the royal archives, and other never-before-revealed sources to create a dazzling sequel to The King s Speech and tell the true and thrilling drama of Great Britain at war and of a staggering transformation for its monarchy.

About this Item: Great Northern Books Ltd, United Kingdom, 2014. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. One man s role in the Abdication of Edward VIII has been secret ever since the crisis over his love for Mrs Simpson unfolded in December 1936. Described by those in the know as a leader of Black Magic in England , he had been treating Edward for alcohol problems. The discovery that the King had secretly turned to Dr Alexander Cannon was the point of no return for the religious leaders and politicians around King Edward. He had to go. Recently uncovered documents and tape recordings show that not only was there a plot hatched to oust Edward, but that fascist Black Shirt supporters claimed they too were aware of a conspiracy involving Dr Cannon and the King Watchers - and they tried to stop it. So who was Sir Dr Alexander Cannon? And why was he later allowed to set up a clinic for battle-weary top brass military during the Second World War - despite being suspected of spying? Using additional MI5 and police documents, this is the story of the hypnotist, the King, and the clinic attended by the rich and famous who went for Cannon s special brand of treatment - and the odd sexual tryst.

About this Item: Shire Publications April 2014, 2014. Hardcover. Condition: New. The British royal family has endured remarkably in a remarkable, tumultuous century from 1910-2010 when many of the crown heads of Europe faced revolution and exile. Through a constitutional crisis, abdication, divorces, tragic deaths and unseemly scandals, the British royal family has shown an instinct for survival, tapping into the pulse of public sentiment, making necessary adjustments, modernizing and reinventing itself to remain the respected, admired and beloved symbol of British history and heritage. This book chronicles a century of British royalty and features the story a nation witnessed as a compelling family saga of tragedy, fallibility and triumph like no other: the abdication of Edward VIII to be with the woman he loved, Mrs. Wallis Simpson; the now-commonplace royal infidelities and divorces and the public backlash and eventual recovery of public sympathy for Queen Elizabeth II following the death of Princess Diana. Through it all, the dutiful dedication to crown and country, unblinking stoicism, and absolute resolve of Queen Elizabeth II has guided the nation for five decades, culminating in the Diamond Jubilee celebrations where Britain put on display the pomp and splendor which are the envy of the world. The book also uniquely captures the streetview of how the people responded to news of and from the royals from spontaneous celebrations in pubs to a gathering around radios and televisions in times of trouble. This collection takes you into the moment as it happened and is the most intimately revealing photographic study of the British monarchy as a family, and as an extended family in its relationship with its subjects.
