Rudolf Hess's flight to Britain in May 1941 stands out as one of the most intriguing and bizarre episodes of World War II. Exploring the many myths about this escapade, James Douglas-Hamilton 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 this reissue of the 1971 edition, Douglas-Hamilton throws light on the importance of Albrecht Haushofer, one-time envoy to Hitler and personal advisor to Hess, who was eventually executed by the SS for his involvement in the German Resistance movement.
