Angelina : an unauthorized biography by Andrew Morton( Book )

13 editions published between 2010 and 2012 in 4 languages and held by 1,420 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

At first glance, Angelina Jolie might seem to be someone without any secrets, talking openly about her love life, drug use, etc. Yet mysteries remain: What went on in her brief, impulsive marriages to Jonny Lee Miller and Billy Bob Thornton, and what is going on with Brad Pitt? What's behind the feud with her father, actor Jon Voight? What drove her to become a mother of six children in six years? And how did this talented but troubled young actress, barely 35 years old, become the "most powerful celebrity in the world" (unseating Oprah Winfrey) on Forbes' 2009 Celebrity 100 list, working with victims of poverty and disaster? Andrew Morton draws upon original interviews and research to show us what shaped her as a child, as an actress, and as a woman struggling to overcome personal demons never before revealed.--From publisher description
17 carnations : the royals, the Nazis and the biggest cover-up in history by Andrew Morton( Book )

16 editions published between 2015 and 2016 in English and held by 1,379 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Morton tells the story of the feckless Edward VIII, later Duke of Windsor, his American wife Wallis Simpson, the bizarre wartime Nazi plot to make him a puppet king after the invasion of Britain, and the attempted cover-up by Churchill, General Eisenhower, and King George VI of the Duke's relations with Hitler. From the alleged affair between Simpson and the German foreign minister to the discovery of top secret correspondence about the man dubbed 'the traitor king' and the Nazi high command, this is a saga of intrigue, betrayal, and deception suffused with a heady aroma of sex and suspicion."--

17 carnations : the royals, the Nazis, and the biggest cover-up in history by Andrew Morton( )

6 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 211 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A meticulously researched historical tour de force in the style of the bestselling In the Garden of Beasts. Historian Andrew Morton's 17 Carnations combines his considerable research background with his proven talent for addictive and readable narrative, giving us a true story steeped in intrigue, suspense, and historical drama.17 Carnations tells the story of the feckless Edward VIII, Duke of Windsor, and his wife Wallis Simpson, whose affair with Joachim von Ribbentrop embroiled the duke in a German plot to use him as a puppet king during their takeover of the British Empire. Although we know that the war ended with Hitler's defeat, Edward's story was far from over. The duke's collaboration with Hitler had resulted in piles of correspondence between them. This damning correspondence, now hidden in a German castle that had fallen to American soldiers, could forever tarnish the reputation of the royal family. 17 Carnations reveals, for the first time in history, the story of the cover-up of those letters, starting with a daring heist--by order of Churchill and the king themselves--to bring the letters back safely to England and out of American hands. Morton's unique experience and training make him the perfect person to tell this story as it's never been told before, fusing history and entertainment to create a vivid, atmospheric chronicle of the Windsors' darkest secrets. The shadowy connection between the House of Windsor, the German aristocracy, and Hitler has hovered on the edge of public consciousness for decades, but no royal biography or historical chronicle has been able to tell the full story--until now. Drawing on FBI documents, material from the German and British Royal Archives, and the personal correspondence of Churchill, Truman, Eisenhower, and the Windsors themselves, 17 Carnations is a dazzling historical drama full of adventure, intrigue, and startling revelations by a master of the genre
