"When I published my thriller Balmoral Kill a while ago, I wrote a piece on its background. The plan by the Nazis and some elements of the British Establishment to bring back the abdicated Edward VIII (then the Duke of Windsor) as a puppet king if Hitler ever conquered Britain or forced the country to seek peace. I said at the time how, in 1953, Winston Churchill begged President Eisenhower to suppress correspondence in the files of the FBI which revealed the Duke of Windsor’s sympathies with the Nazis. This week our National Archives have released documents proving the case. So I thought it worth while republishing my original piece. "

Very intersting article by John Bainbridge‏ about Britain's sympathies before and during WWII. Never known any of this. It's just an intersting read

"The book belongs in the subgenre of books that retell fairy tales during one of the World Wars, specifically WWII and the Nazis with this one--which Hansel and Gretel is rather ripe to deal with when you consider the story elements."
