Hanging Lord Haw-Haw

Author(s):

Pro-Nazi broadcaster William Joyce (known as Lord Haw-Haw by the British) is brought to vivid life in this imaginative depiction of his career and relationships. Beginning in his Brixton Jail cell where he is being held on trial for treason after WWII, we flash back in time to follow Joyce through the churning politics of 1930s London and on to the unlikely position of broadcasting Nazi propaganda to the Allies from a radio station in Berlin. A brisk, smart, disturbing, and often humorous portrayal of a complicated man.
