Product description


"It takes a spy to catch a spy...Hal Vaughan, a former newsman and CIA operative, has finally done what the legions of Coco Chanel's other biographers resolutely failed to do: uncover the French fashion queen's secret past as a Nazi agent...Vaughan, who writes with welcome economy and flair, deserves a lot of credit for finally unravelling the strands of Chanel's deeply deceptive personality." (Financial Times)

"His research is valuable, adding crucial pieces to the jigsaw puzzle of Chanel's war" (Justine Picardie Mail on Sunday)

"It's a fascinating story" (Daisy Goodwin Sunday Times)

"Not for the first time, the ghosts of the holocaust are returning to haunt the industry. Sleeping with the Enemy reveals that Coco Chanel, the 'high priestess of couture' had a long affair with a German Nazi agent and collaborated with the Nazis during the Second World War...if the truth about Chanel had been revealed at the time, her reputation would have been utterly destroyed" (Aoife Drew Irish Independent)

"Sleeping with the Enemy claims that not only was the designer the lover of a German officer, Hans Gunther von Dincklage, but they were spies who went on missions to Madrid and Berlin" (Christine Kearney Evening Herald Dublin)

Book Description

The first book to uncover the true story of Gabrielle 'Coco' Chanel in occupied Paris during the Second World War. Hal Vaughan reveals: her life as an Abwehr secret agent; her long love affair with a Nazi master spy; her missions on behalf of German military intelligence; and her astonishing escape from retribution through the intervention of Winston Churchill.
