One dangerous project too many
25 September 2004 | by (Ontario, Canada) – See all my reviews

Although Bedaux was eventually arrested by American authorities on a charge of treason it is not in the least obvious that he was simply another Nazi collaborator. The truth is much more fascinating inasmuch as Bedaux seemed to feel a sense of duty or loyalty only to his wife and to his business projects. His blind pursuit of business and adventures on the scale of continents cost him his life.

Champagne figured prominently in Bedaux's semi-successful safari through subarctic bush and wetlands, and over mountain passes, from Edmonton, Alberta (Canada) to British Columbia in 1934. Indeed his entire life was a dazzling "champagne safari". He was famous for entertaining the world's richest people, including European and American business and political elites--and housing the Duke and Duchess of Windsor--in his renovated Loire chateau.

And he managed all of this having arrived from France in New York a couple of decades earlier with one dollar in his pocket.
