A major figure behind his nephew Philip’s marriage to Queen Elizabeth ll, Dickie Mountbatten’s career included being Supreme Allied Commander of South East Asia during World War Two and the last Viceroy of India. Once the richest woman in Britain and a socialite who enjoyed numerous affairs, Edwina Mountbatten emerged from World War Two as a much-loved and very effective charity worker. In The Mountbattens: Their Lives and Loves, prize-winning and bestselling historian Andrew Lownie draws on four years of research to provide a fresh and revealing portrait of the glamorous couple behind the modern royal family.
