Mary Kenny’s in-depth biography of the infamous William Joyce aka Lord Haw-Haw is the most intimate, dramatic account of a man who became the notorious propaganda voice for Nazi Germany, supported by Hitler and Goebbels, and ultimately was hanged for treason by the British Crown.

Mary Kenny's biography takes us into the life of William Joyce, aka Lord Haw - Haw. Kenny takes us on an absorbing journey into the complex life of a 'crazy mixed-up Irishman' who ended as the media star of Hitler, Goebbels and the Third Reich.

During the Second World War 9 million Britons would tune into Hamburg radio to listen to Lord Haw-Haw's broadcasts. Germany Calling is both authoritative, comprehensive and compassionate, in exploring the motivations of an appalling man, and how he succeeded in becoming one of the most reviled figures of the modern age. Mary Kenny is renowned for her narrative style and depth of research.

This is the real strength of this book, and results in a biography that keeps the reader absorbed to the last page 'Mary Kenny has written an absorbingly elegant study. To all Joyce's shabby dreams, loyalties and cruelties Kenny brings both compassion and a clear mind.

A biography whose even-handed beauty of expression combines Irish gravity with Irish spark' The Guardian
