'Britain and her far-flung dominions were shaken by a meteoric crisis that threatened the government and caused a king to lose his throne. Though many versions have been told, including books by the Windsors themselves, this one focuses on the political as well as the personal aspects. Beaverbrook, powerful press lord and confidant of Edward VII, ... reveals why the King persisted in his plea for a morganatic marriage ... how Prime Minister Baldwin seized on the Simpson affair as an opportunity to cashier a new ruler whose views of foreign affairs were at variance with his own.'--from jacket flap.
