Adrian Phillips has pulled off a remarkable coup. By sedulous research he has been able to shed fresh light on the intricate political maneuvers surrounding one of most studied episodes in our history--the 1936 abdication crisis. The King Who Had to Go is an elegant and compelling book.--Piers Brendon, author of 'Edward VIII: The Uncrowned King' (praise for 'The King Who Had to Go')
" A comprehensive examination of British Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain's efforts to negotiate peace with Nazi Germany."-- "Publishers Weekly"
"The King Who Had to Go provides a dramatic and persuasive account of an important episode in British constitutional history. Based on an impressive range of sources, and written with flair, it makes a compelling case for Edward VIII's inadequacy as a monarch."--Richard Toye, Professor and Head of History, University of Exeter [praise for 'The King Who Had to Go']
"This fascinating study is a model of historical sleuthing. Vigorously researched, it should appeal widely to history buffs"-- "Library Journal"
"A complex tale of the political rivalry that underlay a key episode in 20th-century world events. A fresh interpretation of the question of appeasement that will interest students of 20th-century history."-- "Kirkus Reviews"
"This very readable and detailed description of how policy was made and implemented gives us a unique way to look at fateful decisions that helped advance events leading to World War II."-- "BookPage"
