Len's Summary: A real pot boiler: the story of a 12-year affair between Senator Warren G. Harding and Carrie Phillips, who – with her daughter – was allegedly a German agent. Drawing on Library of Congress files, the author also looks at wartime pro-German sentiment in America though he fails to establish the historical or political significance of the Harding-Phillips affair.
