The Royals and the Reich. The Princes von Hessen in Nazi Germany by Jonathan Petropoulos
Jonathan Petropoulos, in his book "Royals and the Reich" reviews the case that the Duke of Windsor was a traitor and an agent for Nazi Germany which was made by Martin Allen in his book "Hidden Agenda. How the Duke of Windsor Betrayed the Allies".
Author Martin Allen goes much further than this, arguing in his controversial book, Hidden Agenda, that the duke spied for Hitler, especially in the critical phase in late-1939 and early-1940 prior to the Battle of France.
According to Allen, the duke made inspection tours of the French army's front line positions, including the Maginot line, and provided reports of troop deployments not only to the British (French-British co-operation not being what it should have been), but also to the Germans.
The link between the duke and the Nazis, according to Allen, was wealthy American industrialist Charles Bedaux (sometimes spelled Bedault), who was a close friend of the Windsors. Bedaux had loaned them his home, chateau Cande in France, for their wedding in June 1937, and he was almost certainly a Nazi intelligence asset; he knew Goring personally and had many German business contacts.
Martin Allen goes so far as to argue that the Duke of Windsor provided Bedaux with the crucial information about the French deployment, that this information, when passed on, induced Hitler to take the bold move and invade France through the poorly defended Ardennes forest, and that this is the primary explanation for the stunning Nazi victory in May-June 1940.
It is a devastating indictment: the Duke of Windsor was not only a traitor but the main reason for the German victory in the West and all that came with it (occupation, the Battle of Britain, and the persecution of Jews in these regions, among other developments).

Daft to invite traitor Prince Charles to D-Day event.
BBC: Obama wants Queen at D-Day event
The White House spokesman the other day was all in favour of the French inviting Queen Elizabeth to Normandy for the 65th anniversary commemoration of the D-Day Normandy invasion to liberate Europe and to defeat the Nazis.
It is daft for the US to want the Queen invited, to anything! Stupid!
Obama is going to this D-day event on the coast of France. Sarkozy's going. Brown is going. Apparently there has been some mix up leading to no timely invite for the Queen. Good!
She should be banned from attending - as should all members of the UK royal family.
The Queen should not be invited.
Americans have got monarchy to blame for the Al Qaeda 9/11 attacks provoked, encouraged or otherwise caused by monarchs and dictators in "Muslim" countries.
The Queen's Uncle Edward, the Duke of Windsor and ex-King was a Nazi sympathiser who is thought to have spied and leaked to the Nazis the deployments of the French forces which enabled the Wehrmacht to penetrate the Maginot line through the Ardennes and led ultimately to the fall of France.
Queen Elizabeth's husband Philip - his sister married a Nazi SS Colonel.
The monarchy is the enemy - they hate democracy and republics which have no need of royalty and the royals love and support what the Nazis did to their German republican critics - exterminate them as they would exterminate us if they could.
So wake up America!
Stop inviting the Queen to things! The worst was when Bush invited the Queen to the White House!
The Queen's predecessors as monarchs allowed the sabotaging of the British army to the point where we could not even easily defend our nearest and best ally France.
All the deaths of WW2 have to be blamed on the UK monarchy for allowing a British world power built not on monarchy but on the genius of the industrial revolution to fall into disrepair and disorganisation and ending up as a runt hapless army that got kicked out of Europe at Dunkirk.
The industrial revolution should have been followed by a republican revolution so the British military would have become a republican force for democracy world-wide as the US military is today.
To keep Britain as a Kingdom was to sabotage the British army long term, so even admitting that the Queen changed the wheels on a few army trucks in World War 2, the whole army was and is today still weakened by monarchy.
So that makes the Queen and her family traitors.
If the royals want to help the British military today then they should go into exile.
Well it looks like instead of the traitor Queen Elizabeth, her traitor son, the Traitor Prince Charles will be allowed to attend the D-day event - just as bad, just as stupid.

48 Members of the Scottish Parliament defy Queen's summons.
The Scotsman: Snub for Queen as 48 MSPs miss her speech.
From Scottish Republican News
The fanfare which heralded the Queen's entrance to the Scottish Parliament rang hollow as 48 Members of the Scottish Parliament stayed away. 1st July 2009.
The 10th anniversary of the Scottish Parliament reconvening in 1999 was marked by an event at Holyrood to which Queen Elizabeth was invited and more importantly for the cause of the democratic right of the Scottish people to elect our own head of state, there appears to have been a partly organised, partly spontaneous boycott, snub or mass stay-away by 48 Members of the Scottish Parliament in total being absent from the occasion of the Queen's address to parliament on 1st July 2009.
48 out of the 129 MSPS, 37% of MSPs - which under some republican constitutions would be enough to defend an elected president in office where a 2/3 majority of parliament was required under the constitution to remove an impeached president - did not attend on the Queen to attempt to surrender the sovereignty of the Scottish nation to Queen Elizabeth, did not sit there as traitors while the rights of the people of Scotland were defied by Elizabeth Windsor, imposed on us Scots as head of state.
So it was an encouraging day for Scottish republicans and to mark the event, I have called the Scottish Republican Roll of Honour 2009.
I require further information to complete the roll in detail which I intend to write to MSPs to seek - in particular, which members who did not attend are republicans, and which are not.

I'm a republican, plain and simple as that. I had no intention of being there and I made my position clear before the event. I don't want to be seen as a hypocrite because I don't believe in the aristocracy running our country
