Synopsis: In 1945 seven men, once among the most powerful on earth, were locked away in a vast prison built to hold more than 600 inmates, surrounded by every conceivable escape-proof precaution. Tried and convicted for attempting to enslave the world, they were the last of what Winston Churchill had called the Hitler gang. Long Knives and Short Memories examines the seven men themselves - their private lives, their motivation, their machination's inside Spandau, their conversations with their families, lawyers, friends and enemies, and , in some cases, the men themselves, from visits to Berlin made with their wives, from letters written in prison, both authorized and smuggled, and from authentic conversations between the prisoners, this aspect of the book is in itself a gripping study in human corruption. Long Knives and Short Memories is an unique and formidable piece of research into an unprecedented event in world history. Its photographs alone bear historic witness to the fallibility of human integrity.
About the Author: Jack Fishman was born in London and spent twenty years of his professional life as News Editor and Deputy Editor of two of Britain's largest national newspapers, specialising in political journalism. His first book on the inmates of Spandau, "The seven men of Spandau", was published in almost every language, receiving worldwide acclaim and giving rise to debates in the House of Commons. His book on Lady Churchill, "My Darling Clementine", was another international best-seller, and he was again acclaimed for his most recent book, published by Souvenir Press, "And The Wall Came Tumbling Down", an examination of the events surrounding Operation Jericho during the Second World War.
