An English Tragedy


The true story of a family in turmoil in post-war Britain. English traitor, John Amery, was arrested in Italy in 1945 and brought back to London for trial. He was charged with high treason for making propaganda broadcasts for Nazi Germany. The fact that John Amery was the son of senior politician, Leo Amery, who served in Winston Churchill's cabinet during the war, made the crime all the more controversial.
