Description - War Of The Windsors by Lynn Picknett
The year 2002 marks the Golden Jubilee of Elizabeth II. This is the longest reign of any monarch of the House of Windsor - yet the future of the monarchy is by no means certain, not simply due to today's more egalitarian era, but also because of fundamental weaknesses within the Royal House itself. But while its peccadilloes and failings are well known it has managed to hide some considerably more disturbing activities from public scrutiny, for which the royals have never been held to account. Until now. In this controversial new book, bestselling authors Lynn Picknett, Clive Prince and Stephen Prior reveal the truth behind Britain's modern monarchy. War of the Windsors exposes- The full extent of the battle for power of various dynastic groups, in particular Lord Louis Mountbat-ten's ruthless scheming to make Britain's ruling family the House of Mountbatten The untold story of the abdication of Edward VII The existence of a shadowy cabal committed to protecting the royal family from sullying the royal im-age - whose activities, masterminded by Lord Mountbatten, sometimes even involved murder.
