5.0 out of 5 stars Throws a light on an interesting period of British history, 20 Nov 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Hess, Hitler and Churchill: The Real Turning Point of the Second World War - A Secret History (Hardcover)
An intriguing book about a period of modern British history that has alwasy been shrouded in mystery. Why did Hess come to Britain at the beginning of the war? Was it with or without Hitler's knowledge? Did he bring a peace proposal from the Nazi goverment? Who were the appeasers in the British establishment who wanted to make peace with Hitler?
Would they have been right to trust his word? Churchill made sure very little got out to the public at the time becaue he knew (through Bletchley Park decrypts) Hitler was about to attack the Soviet Union and any promises Hitler made to Britain were likely to be broken once he had overrun Russia. Why was Hess kept in Spandau Gaol after the war and was his death suicide or assisted? Not every question is answered but it's a thundering good read!

Very prompt delivery from Amazon arrived in perfect condition.

I have yet to read this book but I would like to bring to your attention that a certain author of the the 1930s and of during WW2, Douglas Reed, raised a great many questions in his book All Our Tomorrows (pub.June 1942), about what Hess was doing in Britain and what the govt. was doing about Hess. The whole episode was cloaked in mystery, but Reed suspected that appeasement and/or a pact with Germany against Russia was on the secret agenda. Reed was a firm believer in 'the unseen, dead hand' which controls governments and politicians. It's all there in chapter 17, entitled Messenger From Mars.
