Andrew Lownie - Traitor King

The Scandelous Exile of the Duke & Duchess of Windsor

Beginning this astonishing dual biography at the moment that most biographers turn away, bestselling historian Andrew Lownie reveals the dramatic lives of the Windsors post-abdication. This is a story of a royal shut out by his family and forced into exile; of the Nazi attempts to recruit the duke to their cause; and of why the duke, as Governor of the Bahamas, tried to shut down the investigation into the murder of a close friend.  It is a story of a couple obsessed with their status, financially exploiting their position, all the while manipulating the media to portray themselves as victims.

Andrew has written for The Times, The Daily Telegraph, The Wall Street Journal, The Spectator and The Guardian.

Interviewing Andrew will be Anthony Tucker-Jones.  Anthony is a prolific author, feature and script writer.  He has written over 60 books and has appeared on various TV and radio show.
