This text aims to shed light on discoveries which claim to reveal the truth about Rudolph Hess' solo flight to Britain in May 1941 and explain the British government's 60-year-long silence as to what the Hess mission was all about. The mystery of the deputy Fuhrer's flight and subsequent silence has led to a seemingly endless flow of books speculating as to his motives. In 2001 (the 60th anniversary of the flight) more books appeared. But the crucial pieces of evidence which could prove that the British government were playing a game - the outcome of which would have far-reaching effects on the course of the war - have not been found. This book claims to have this very information.

On the night of May 10, 1941, a Messerschmitt–110 crash–landed on a remote Scottish hillside. Its pilot was Rudolf Hess, the Deputy–Führer of the German Reich. Hess’ remarkable solo flight was immediately dismissed in both Britain and Germany as the act of a deranged mind. He was disowned by Hitler, and Churchill’s government insisted that his unexpected arrival on British soil was of no lasting consequence. Nevertheless, the mysterious circumstances of the flight, and Hess’ silence during fifty years of imprisonment, have led to endless speculation as to his true motives. Until now, no one has found the crucial pieces of evidence that prove that a small group of men within the British government and intelligence services were, in fact, conducting a brilliantly clever plot that would not only lead to Hess’ flight, but would have a decisive impact on the course of the war and the forces that shaped postwar Britain.About the Author:
