cozy dealings with Adolf Hitler."--The Advocate

"Morton offers a nuanced, intimate, and psychologically incisive understanding of a troubling royal, and arguably, his even more troubling wife. Sorting through myths and conspiracy theories with great skill, he explores their relationship to Hitler and the Nazis. Morton is fearless in his observations and convincing in his conclusions. He vividly illuminates a dark corner of royal history, exposing events which Churchill, Eisenhower, and others tried to conceal."--Jonathan Petropoulos, author of Royals and the Reich: The Princes von Hessen in Nazi Germany
