    The People’s King: The True Story of the Abdication by Susan Williams is pretty much standard fare about the subject. It’s a competently written account, but relies far too heavily on long transcripts of contemporaneous letters from members of the public (mostly), and sent to the government and Edward VIII. I guess this is what the author was referring to as being “the true story”, as it provides an account of what some members of ‘the public’ thought about the abdication crisis at t [...]

    I was reading and thoroughly enjoying Rhys Bowen's Royal Spyness mysteries in which Wallis Simpson makes several catty appearances and I was curious to know whether this portrayal of her was accurate. So I got two biographies from the library, this one, and The Duchess Of Windsor: A Secret Life by Charles Higham. When learning about historical characters, I always like to read several books, to get a well-rounded portrait, as every historian writes from their own particular bias or viewpoint. Bu [...]

    Spurred by curiosity after watching "The King's Speech" I picked this book up at the library so I could better understand about the abdication of King Edward. This was a well researched and documented book that has totally changed my mind about the King's love affair with Wallis Simpson. This was truly a great love and the abdication was forced upon him by the Prime Minister and his cabinet because they didn't want a king that was interested in helping the poor and unemployed. How different the [...]

    A bit dry, particularly compared with the salacious stories surrounding the abdication, but it does present an interesting view of Edward as king that you usually don't read about.

    Really well researched, but mind-numbingly detailed slog through a series of facts and quotes, and not readable writing.
