The Mountbattens is the first dual portrait of two of the most glamorous figures of their time. Earl Mountbatten of Burma, assassinated 40 years ago by the IRA, had a distinguished military career before becoming the last Viceroy of India. His wife Edwina, a rich society heiress when they married, found new purpose in her life during the Second World War and after with her humanitarian work. From high society in Britain and the south of France, to the battlefields of Burma and the Viceroy’s House, this is a rich story of a marriage between two people closely linked to all the key contemporary figures, exploring many important and controversial issues of the 20th century.
