A major figure behind his nephew Philip's marriage to Queen Elizabeth II, Dickie Mountbatten was Supreme Allied Commander of South East Asia during World War II and the last Viceroy of India. His wife, Edwina, was one of Britain's richest women and men found her irresistible. Seeking the truth about one of Britain's most memorable power couples, the author of Stalin's Englishman reassesses Mountbatten to determine whether he was a skilled leader or merely a shameless self-promoter. Here too are accounts of the love affair between Edwina and Nehru, and Mountbatten's shocking 1979 assassination at the hands of the IRA.
