The reluctant king : the life & reign of George VI, 1895-1952 by Sarah Bradford( Book )

9 editions published between 1989 and 1990 in English and held by 1,110 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

On Friday, December 11, 1936, King Edward VIII abdicated the British throne to marry Wallis Simpson. The abdication came at a crucial time in history, with Hitler and Mussolini allied, and Europe moving toward war. Suddenly Edward's younger brother, Albert, had to assume the throne. At forty-one, the new King faced not only a difficult family crisis, but a skeptical British press and public as well. Though he was sometimes a reluctant monarch, George VI possessed the self-discipline and integrity that his brother lacked. He would reign until his death in 1952, leaving to his eldest daughter, Elizabeth II, a throne more stable than England had known since Victoria ruled. This book is the first truly intimate portrait of the man and his entire family. The author has penetrated the closed circle that surrounds the royal family through archival research in the United States and Britain, the discovery of unpublished diaries and private letters, and extensive interviews. The abdication crisis, the King's leadership during the war, his relationship with Churchill, the unfolding saga of the two brothers, and much more are examined in detail by this biography

The Sitwells : and the arts of the 1920s and 1930s( Book )

1 edition published in 1996 in English and held by 149 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Edith, Osbert, and Sacheverell Sitwell rarely missed an opportunity to promote themselves or denounce their sworn enemy, the Philistine. The Sitwells were natural subjects, and targets, for the media. Unconventional, aristocratic, and physically imposing, they were bold, talented, and provocative. This book celebrates their lives and their artistic crusade, which brought them into contact and conflict with many of the leading figures of the arts in the early part of this century. Gertrude Stein, T.S. Eliot, Dylan Thomas, and Evelyn Waugh were among their friends; their favorite enemies included Wyndham Lewis, Noel Coward, and D.H. Lawrence. The book begins with their childhood at Renishaw, the ancestral home in Derbyshire, England, and with their ill-matched parents, the eccentric Sir George and the extravagant Lady Ida. It follows them to London, to the fashionable circles of Bloomsbury and the elegant drawing rooms of celebrated society hostesses; and to Paris, to the studios Modigliani and Picasso. It discusses their involvement with the Russian ballet, their early literary ventures, and their patronage of the young composer William Walton, which resulted in Facade, their most famous collaboration
