Abstract:

Edward was the twentieth century's Prince Charming. He was handsome, eloquent, quick-witted, charismatic, a dazzling foil to his stuffy royal parents. He was a popular hero who saw firsthand the hell of the trenches in the Great War, who raged at the miseries of the Depression, who adored jazz, danced the night away and seemed the very embodiment of a new democratic royalty that would rule the greatest empire on earth. When he became King in 1936, only those closest to him knew that this radiant image could not -- and would not -- endure; even insiders were scarcely prepared for the appalling scandal and shock when, a mere eleven months later, his reign abruptly ended with a nighttime journey to France and marriage to an American divorcee. Drawing on Edward's extremely frank and explicit diaries, on his two thousand love letters (long assumed to have been destroyed) and on the private and secret papers of Baldwin, Chamberlain and Churchill, Ziegler enables us to see the man, for the first time, as he was. - Jacket flap.

Traces the life of King Edward VIII of England who abdicated the throne to marry American divorcee Wallis Simpson.
