Description

A meticulously researched historical tour de force in the style of the bestselling "In the Garden of Beasts"

Historian Andrew Morton s "17 Carnations" combines his considerable research background with his proven talent for addictive and readable narrative, giving us a true story steeped in intrigue, suspense, and historical drama.

"17 Carnations" tells the story of the feckless Edward VIII, Duke of Windsor, and his wife Wallis Simpson, whose affair with Joachim von Ribbentrop embroiled the duke in a German plot to use him as a puppet king during their takeover of the British Empire. Although we know that the war ended with Hitler s defeat, Edward s story was far from over. The duke s collaboration with Hitler had resulted in piles of correspondence between them. This damning correspondence, now hidden in a German castle that had fallen to American soldiers, could forever tarnish the reputation of the royal family. "17 Carnations" reveals, for the first time in history, the story of the cover-up of those letters, starting with a daring heist by order of Churchill and the king themselves to bring the letters back safely to England and out of American hands.

Morton s unique experience and training make him the perfect person to tell this story as it s never been told before, fusing history and entertainment to create a vivid, atmospheric chronicle of the Windsors darkest secrets. The shadowy connection between the House of Windsor, the German aristocracy, and Hitler has hovered on the edge of public consciousness for decades, but no royal biography or historical chronicle has been able to tell the full story until now. Drawing on FBI documents, material from the German and British Royal Archives, and the personal correspondence of Churchill, Truman, Eisenhower, and the Windsors themselves, "17 Carnations" is a dazzling historical drama full of adventure, intrigue, and startling revelations by a master of the genre."

display_description "Morton tells the story of the feckless Edward VIII, later Duke of Windsor, his American wife Wallis Simpson, the bizarre wartime Nazi plot to make him a puppet king after the invasion of Britain, and the attempted cover-up by Churchill, General Eisenhower, and King George VI of the duke's relations with Hitler. From the alleged affair between Simpson and the German foreign minister to the discovery of top secret correspondence about the man dubbed 'the traitor king' and the Nazi high command, this is a saga of intrigue, betrayal, and deception suffused with a heady aroma of sex and suspicion"--Dust jacket flap.
