A Bombshell from Newsweek: "New Evidence Shows Duke of Windsor Plotted With Hitler"

A must read article for history buffs in Newsweek. A short excerpt from the article by Karina Urbach:
     The Soviet intelligence services were convinced of the Duke of Windsor’s [formerly King Edward VIII] treachery when war broke out. It is probable that they had an informer on his staff. In 1940 they reported that he was conducting negotiations with Hitler to form a new English government and conclude a peace with Germany contingent on a military alliance against the USSR.
     Even more evidence of Windsor’s treachery was hidden in Spanish archives. Like his relative Coburg, the Duke of Windsor was anti-Semitic. In June 1940 Don Javier Bermejillo, a Spanish diplomat and old friend of Windsor—he had known him since the 1920s—reported a conversation he had had with the Duke to his superiors.
