About this item

Rudolph Hess’ flight to Britain in May 1941 stands out as one of the most intriguing and bizarre episodes of the Second World War.

In The Truth About Rudolph Hess, Lord James Douglas-Hamilton explores many of the myths which still surround the affair. He traces the developments which persuaded Hess to undertake the flight without Hitler’s knowledge and shows why he chose to approach the Duke of Hamilton. In the process he throws light on the importance of Albrect Haushofer, one-time envoy to Hitler and Ribbentrop and personal advisor to Hess, who was eventually executed by the SS for his involvement in the German Resistance movement.

Drawing on British War Cabinet papers and the author’s unparalleled access to both the Hamilton papers and the Haushofer letters, this new and expanded edition of The Truth About Rudolph Hess takes the reader into the heart of the Third Reich, combing adventure and intrigue with a scholarly historical approach.
