Synopsis

This intriguing chronicle follows the life of Charles Bedaux, a self-made man who played an important but little known behind-the-scenes role during the most tumultuous years of the 20th century. Although his first job was as an apprentice pimp in the streets of Paris, Bedaux always thought big. He built the world?s leading consulting firm of his time, allowing him access to the highest levels of government and society. He was a friend of the Duke of Windsor and Wallis Simpson, even hosting their wedding at his private chateau in France. However, his penchant for deceit and his activities for the Third Reich led to his ultimate demise as he was about to launch his most ambitious project ? the conquest of the Sahara. You will be fascinated ? and perhaps frightened ? by the events and people Charles Bedaux was able to influence during his lifetime.
