Description

William and Margaret Joyce - Lord and Lady Haw-Haw - became one of the most mythologized, feared and ridiculed partnerships of the Second World War. His 'Germany Calling' broadcasts and her pro-Nazi wireless talks were part of the very fabric of the Home Front. Yet, when the couple were captured in May 1945, only William was charged with high treason, despite its becoming apparent that he wasn't actually a British subject. Authorized by William Joyce's daughter, Heather, and based on new interviews and unpublished letters, diaries and recently declassified Secret Service files, "Haw-Haw" is a meticulously researched biography, an incisive and shocking study of two people whose beliefs overrode everything. "Makes Joyce's belief in the eventual victory of British fascism seem credible to today's readers, masterful use of source material" - James Wood, "Scotland on Sunday". "'Exciting and endlessly fascinating" - Craig Brown, "Mail on Sunday" (5 stars). "Well-researched and fast-paced" - Michael Burleigh, "Sunday Times".
