WHY EDWARD WENT: Crown, Clique and Church

He goes a long way to add little to the already known facts, and the implications that ""now it can be told this side the water"" is scarcely borne out by the content. He picks out his three bugbears -- Bolitho, for his unjust biography; Eden for his anti-fascist stand which, he feels, led to the pro-fascist charges against Edward; and the Church, blaming George for not taking a firm stand against its attitude towards the whole situation. He intimates that George is little liked, and warns against the conspiracy of silence about the Duke of Windsor. That's the text of his screed. He takes 200 pages to say what could be put into 25. Diffuse and poorly organized.
