Description
He was a major figure behind his nephew Philip's marriage to Queen Elizabeth II and instrumental in the royal family taking the Mountbatten name; he was Supreme Allied Commander of South East Asia during World War II and the last Viceroy of India. She was once the richest woman in Britain, a playgirl who enjoyed numerous affairs, but she emerged from World War II as a magnetic and talented humanitarian worker who was loved throughout the­ world. Dickie and Edwina Mountbatten were a powerful partnership. Lownie reveals the truth behind a carefully curated legend, and the rumors that Dickie was a man of high-level connections, film-star looks and ruthless self-promotion. He examines controversies such as the Dieppe Raid and Indian Partition, the love affair between Edwina and Nehru, and Mountbatten's assassination in 1979. -- adapted from jacket
