Format: Hardcover
A well written book that flows well.
Irish social history, British politics, social tensions and the changing and turbulent times of the 20th Century are intricately woven around this complex, enigmatic and controversial character of mixed allegience and dubious citizenship - coming to a head with World war Two and the now infamous propaganda call-sign.
The trial for treason only adding to controversy that William Joyce (Lord Haw Haw) courted throughout his life...

Mary Kenny has managed the difficult task of writing objectivelly about a contoversial figure. William Joyce was a patriot who was hanged for treason at a time when few people questioned government decisions. He was an naturalised German born in America of Irish parents. But nobody was interested in legal points immediately after the war. "Germany Calling" reveals a complex man who made a series of bad decisions that led to the gallows. He might have stayed in Ireland and helped to build the new republic, but he wanted to serve in the British Army. He could have became a great academician in England but he abandoned his studies to follow Mosley. And he could have stayed in England and survived the war as a prisoner under Defence Regulation 18B, but he made the fateful decision to go to Germany. Rebecca West in "The Meaning of Treason" made no attempt to understand William Joyce but Mary Kenny managed it with style. This is one of the best books I have read.

An excellent, well balanced history of Ireland during William Joyce's life time. In depth account of his life, trial and how the judgement has set a precedent that could effect future trials.
A great read.

This is a well written and highly readable account of William Joyce's life. Mary Kenny has used her source material well to produce a fascinating insight into the mind of Lord Haw Haw. She attempts to identify his motives for working for the Nazis as one of its principal propaganda 'devices'. The book illustrates how a man not directly responsible for the death of anyone fell foul of the post-1945 demand for retribution.

Terrific read and very good insight into a man who betrayed his country more by default than planning. I can thoroughly recommend this to anyone who likes good biographies.
