  1. I read this book a while ago after finding it in the library. It's a really fascinating read. It charts the life of Diana Mitford (later Mosley), one of the six famous (or infamous) Mitford sisters, including her friendship with Hitler and her marriage to the Fascist leader Oswald Mosley. I knew of her before I read the book, and knew a reasonable about Oswald Mosley, and indeed the friendship of Diana and her sister Unity to Hitler, but I still felt I gained an aweful lot from this book. It manages to be objective well, and tells a lot about the less well known periods of her life. Dalley also provides good background, she tells us about the Mitford family and some of their history, and also gives us indepth detail about Oswald Mosley and his campaign, in fact at some points it seems to be more about him than her. The book was written after talks with Diana herself, and I believe she did not want it to be published before her death. I would recommend it to any one who wants to know more about the period, and particularly Diana.
