The 1.3 million-copy New York Times bestseller entirely revised and filled with riveting, recently declassified information First published in 1988, this spellbinding biography was the first to expose the secret life of Wallis Warfield Simpson, the woman who captured a king, Britain's Edward VIII. From the duchess's first marriage to a bisexual aviator to her feud with the Queen Mother, the first edition The Duchess of Windsor unearthed a trove of astonishing revelations and spent 23 weeks in the top five of the New York Times bestseller list. Now, Charles Higham has updated this extraordinary biography with new information on the numerous extramarital liaisons of both the duke and duchess, the bisexuality of the duke, the blackmail plot in Paris that almost brought the Windsors to ruin, and the secret radio broadcasts the duke and duchess made from France to Germany. Charles Higham (Los Angeles, CA) is the author of many bestselling books, including Murdering Mr. Lincoln, American Swastika, and Trading with the Enemy as well as biographies of Katharine Hepburn, Orson Welles, and others.
