Overview

A free-spirited rebel from the start, Unity will do and say just about anything to get herself in trouble. She's different, an outsider. In Adolf Hitler, she finds her idol of nonconformity. But soon her mind is also brainwashed by his racist ideology. She becomes obsessed with seeking to win his love, and she wants to make her native England and his Germany become as one to prevent another world war. If she can achieve these goals, she will be the happiest woman in the world. If not, she plans to end her life.

This is the shocking true story of Unity Mitford, an English girl who was a niece of Winston Churchill and yet she turned into Hitler's most beloved groupie and most unlikely intimate friend. In this well-researched and penetrating account, we learn about a truly strange and fascinating young girl and her extraordinary real relationship with perhaps the most evil and mysterious man in world history.

    this was highly intriguing

    i'm a big fan of world war 2, i'm surprised i had never heard of unity mitford. i heard of oswald mosley tho. i couldn't put this down, it was a page turner. unity was nuts. i wonder why she didn't just join the girl scouts or something. it would have been much more positive for her and much less deadly. i pity her for being picked on for being different.but at the same time it is shocking to see the things she did and how bad she was brain washed. it really makes you think when you listen to what she says. there was something wrong with her mind even before she shot herself and damaged her brain.
