2nd Impression. Illustrated with B&W photographs. EVER SINCE a German parachutist landed in Scotland on the night of May 10th, 1941, claiming to be Hitler’s deputy, Rudolf Hess, in search of peace with England, the man and his case have remained disturbingly enigmatic. It is true that the man who arrived bore a striking physical resemblance to the Deputy Führer; yet his confused and pathetic character seemed strangely unlike that of the formidably efficient officer who until the day before had been at Hitler’s right hand, directing the affairs of the Third Reich. If this book is correct, the man in Spandau Gaol is NOT Rudolf Hess.
