9780750947572: The Flight of Rudolf Hess: Myths and Reality

The story of Rudolf Hess has been the subject of more speculation than any other Nazi leader except Adolf Hitler. Hess’s flight from Augsburg to Scotland in May 1941 in an attempt to negotiate peace continues to fascinate, while his long incarceration in Spandau Prison before his death in 1987 at the age of 93 still casts a long shadow on the consciences of many observers and commentators. The authors use archive sources in Britain, Germany, and the U.S., eyewitness accounts, and the assistance of Hess’s son, Wolf Rüdiger Hess, and the Duke of Hamilton to shed new light on the life of Hess. Their account is fully referenced and will resolve many riddles which still bedevil this fascinating episode of World War II.
