Very Good/Fair. 8vo-over 7¾"-9¾" Tall Octavo Hardback Hardback. Unity Mitford: A Quest. Mark to bottom edge. Couple of tears to D/J. Small piece of D/J. missing from top edge of back D/J. Unity Valkyrie Mitford and sensation were made for one another. As one of the Mitford sisters-a family as glamorous as they individual and original-she was bound to attract attention. Graduating from being a Bright Young Thing, she struck out into the British Union of Fascists in its early days under Sir Oswald Mosley, who was to marry her eldest sister Diana. She picked up Hitler in a Munich restaurant, and proceeded to charm and captivate him. In this, she was phenomenally successful, penetrating to the inmost circle of his life, as Hitler's English girl-friend. Not only did she see him regularly in public and private, but eventually, through his arrangements, settled into a flat in Munich. By then she was on intimate terms with such prominent Nazis as Josef Goebbels and his wife Magda, the notorious Jewbaiter Julius Streicher-and Eva Braun who was thoroughly jealous of her. Faces with the reality of war between her native England and her adopted Germany, she tried to shoot herself, and on Hitler's orders was returned to her family, a casualty of the times. In her way, Unity Mitford bridged Hitler's ignorance of England and the English character. That someone like her had Hitler's ear at the height of his power makes an astonishing story in itself-a sotry of hero-worship and fantacism on her part, mixed with curiosity and opportunism on his.
