William and Margaret Joyce – Lord and Lady Haw-Haw – became one of the most mythologized, feared and ridiculed partnerships of the Second World War. His ‘Germany Calling’ broadcasts and her pro-Nazi wireless talks were part of the very fabric of the Home Front. Yet, when the couple were captured in May 1945, only William was charged with high treason - despite its becoming apparent that he wasn't actually a British subject.
Authorized by William Joyce’s daughter, Heather, and based on new interviews and unpublished letters, diaries and recently declassified Secret Service files, Haw-Haw is a meticulously researched biography: an incisive and shocking study of two people whose beliefs overrode everything.
