    1. After over forty years this still is my favorite telling of the Edward VIII story More documents and new conspiracy theories have come to light, but Donaldson is a beautiful writer in a classic, cultured British way A shelf of harder edged tomes have followed this telling of Edward and Wallis but don t overlook this classic of royal biography.


    2. A good read written after the knowledge there were inside factors to prompt the abdication of Edward VIII.


    3. Edward VIII, by Frances Donaldson, is an excruciatingly detailed biography of Edward VIII, commonly known as the Duke of Windsor Much emphasis is placed upon his upbringing not one one would envy, despite the wealth and title The royal parents were actually quite crappy parents when you get down to it, and much of the later behaviour of the Duke can be laid at their feet.However, in the end, the portrait painted of the Duke is one of a man, not too bright to put it mildly, badly educated, and s [...]


    4. This book is very readable and engaging, even when its subject is not I found it very difficult to feel empathy for the Duke of Windsor Also, this book was written in the early 1970s, shortly after the Duke of Windsor had died, so it is much closer to the subject, with all the advantages and disadvantages that implies.There were some times when I think the culture clash British author, American reader as well as the passage of decades written in 1974, read in 2013 meant that I missed some points [...]


    5. These hundred and hundreds of pages were arduous, thorough, and so filled with such scholarly and erudite research and information Every detail was backed up with proof through so many sources that I don t see how something like this could be written today with the kind of trite studies one sees no I did learn some things about the Duke of Windsor that I did not know before I thought he was a very heavy drinker and a very depressed person, but those facts were disproven with examples and researc [...]


    6. I thought this the best of the biograhies I have read on the Duke of Windsor so far I had the feeling Frances Donaldson started out with a great deal of sympathy for him and as she researched and , so her opinion changed.She remained sympathtic, but not for a man wronged, but for a man who lacked the moral fibre and the backbone to forfill the promise of his youth and position.Written with style and elegance, this is an excellent read.


    7. A SUPER WELL RESEARCHED BIOGRAPHY, SOMETIMES TO THE POINT OF DISTRACTION WITH PLENTEOUS AND LONG FOOTNOTES THE PICTURE OF THE ROYAL FAMILY WAS ONE OF COOLNESS AND DISTANCE I DON T UNDERSTAND WHY EDWARD S MARRIAGE TO WALLIS SIMPSON WOULD PROVOKE A CONSTITUTIONAL CRISIS INSIGHTFUL EXPLANATION OF THE IMPORTANCE AND CONTINUATION OF THE MONARCHY AND ITS MEANING TO THE POPULACE.


    8. Everything you ever wanted to know, and , about the Duke and Duchess of Windsor I think England was lucky he quit.
