The Windsors at War: The Nazi Threat to the Crown

Friday 6 October
Castle Hill Baptist Church

Royal siblings feuding is not new: recent events are as nothing compared the relationship between George VI and his brother, the former Edward VIII, turned the Duke of Windsor.

Before, during and after World War Two – the greatest conflict that Britain had ever faced – King George struggled to do his best for his country, against terrible personal odds, while the indolent and narcissistic Duke was set only on his own comfort. If the Duke had chosen to side with his country’s enemies, there was no telling what those enemies could be capable of.

Author and royal historian Alexander Larman follows his acclaimed abdication saga The Crown in Crisis with The Windsors at War, a story of heroism and treachery that asks how Britain’s most dysfunctional family banded together – and helped win the war.

In Conversation with Festival Director, Neela Mann.
