However, as a basis to understand the local situation at this time, this book is definitely worth reading. But having read it, the next book to read is "The Life and Death of Lord Erroll" by Errol Trzebinski, written in year 2000, which contains information given to her by persons involved with the murder, just before they died and also including British ex-secret agents. This additional information provided, allows Trzebinski to more or less prove that the murder, which included the assistance of the jilted husband, was instigated by British Intelligence to remove Lord Erroll. And this after he had become a right-wing danger during the Second World War and also being possibly connected to other murders and deaths at this time and later even including the murder of Rudolf Hess a few years ago. Both books taken together are really worth reading.
We shall probably never have acccess to the files of MI 5 to know the truth and this is a pity .
ENGLAND was hopelessly outgunned by GERMANY in 1940 and we know now that the partisans of a peace with HITLER were far more numerous than has been said ,the decision to continue the war was played on a dice ,and the far too bellicose CHURCHILL snatched the final decision .
This proves now to have been a monumental error ,because who dominates today EUROPE :mighty GERMANY !!!
