NPR's Scott Simon talks to author Anne de Courcy about her new biography of British aristocrat Diana Mosley. Mosley was one of the famous Mitford sisters who scandalized British society in l936 leaving her husband and marrying Oswald Mosley, head of Britain's Fascist Party. She also was close friends with Adolf Hitler, and remained an ardent admirer of his until her death last year at the age of 93. The book is called Diana Mosley: Mitford Beauty, British Fascist, Hitler's Angel.
