Excerpt:

 

The article examines the time spent by the Duke of Windsor in Lisbon and Cascais after he fled from the advancing German forces in France. The difficulties that his stay caused the Portuguese Government have to be seen in the light of its neutrality at the time. But it was also a difficult time for the Duke, who was under pressure from Spain and Hitler's supporters to try to negotiate peace between the UK and Germany. The author critically examines books on the topic, with a particular interest in the role played by the banker Ricardo de Espírito Santo.
