Extraordinay omissions from the "official record"
13 February 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Such is the spin-doctoring and concealment power of British monarchs and monarchist officials (and that actually includes Churchill, even though Edward was the bane of his existence), that the official version of Edward the Duke of Windsor's life is that he sacrificed his kinghood and all that went with it in order to marry the love of his life. That's what the public still believes -- that Edward's life story is that of the bittersweet romantic.

The truth is quite the opposite: Edward was a traitor many times over, and for well over a decade he allied himself with Hitler and the Nazis, revealed extremely crucial state secrets to them, encouraged Hitler to bomb England to the hilt, aided Hitler's invasion and occupation of France, and told numerous people that Hitler was a great man and that nothing could be better for the world than for Hitler to prevail.

This documentary is a must-watch, in my opinion.

It's on YouTube in its entirety. The best way to watch is clicking on a playlist of the entire program, so that it plays all at once.
