9780751532203: Double Standards

For sixty years there has been an unprecedented cover-up by both the British Establishment and successive generations of historians about the flight of Hitler's Deputy Rudolf Hess to Scotland in May 1941. Long dismissed as the misguided attempt of a madman to make contact with a non-existent British peace party DOUBLE STANDARDS explosively reveals that Hess's peace mission was one of the pivotal events of the twentieth century - and that the Establishment had very good reasons for covering up the truth: the Establishment WAS the peace party that Hess had come to meet. Even more shockingly, the book reveals that members of the Royal Family itself - whose involvement in the Hess affair has been conveniently airbrushed out of history - were at the heart of this group. Based on entirely new material from eyewitnesses, hitherto inaccessible archives and intelligence sources, DOUBLE STANDARDS reveals that Hess's peace mission was of supreme importance. It raises some of the most intriguing questions about the history of the twentieth century. DOUBLE STANDARDS' mission is to answer them.

From the Publisher:

For over 60 years, there has been an unprecedented cover–up by both the British Establishment and successive generations of historians about the flight of Hitler's Deputy Rudolf Hess to Scotland in May 1941. It has long been dismissed as the misguided attempt of a madman to make contact with a non–existent British peace party. Based on entirely new material from eyewitnesses, hitherto inaccessible archives, and intelligence sources, Double Standards reveals that:

Despite official denials, Hess flew to Britain with Hitler’s full knowledge.

There was a substantial British peace party in 1941, which included most of the aristocracy—and the Royal Family.

There is substantial evidence that the prisoner who died in Spandau prison was not the real Rudolf Hess.

The fate of the real Deputy Fuhrer was inextricably linked with that of the Duke of Kent.

Winston Churchill guilefully used Hess to influence Hitler and change Britain’s fortunes in the war.

About the Author:

Picknett & Prince write on the subject of religious & historical mysteries & conspiracies. Stephen Prior, political historian, has had an interest in Rudolf Hess since 1969. They discovered their mutual fascination with the story of Rudolf Hess when they met in Scotland in 1998.
