"The House of Windsor has at its centre fascinating insights into and vivid biographies of the kings and queens of England during a tumultuous century - a period that has seen two world wars, an abdication and undreamt-of social change. Richly illustrated and accessibly written, the book traces the lives of the monarchs of living memory and the near past: from 'Sailor' George V to the eleven days of Edward VIII's reign: from the rebuilding of the crown's authority under George VI and Queen Elizabeth to the accession of the present queen, the turmoil of her children's marriages and the death of the Princess of Wales."--Jacket.
