About this title

Synopsis:

On May 10, 1941, Rudolf Hess, deputy Fuehrer of the Third Reich, embarked on his flight from Augsburg to Scotland. At dusk the same day, he parachuted on to a Scottish moor and was taken into custody. His arrival provoked widespread curiosity and speculation. Why did Hess fly to Scotland? Had Hitler authorized him to attempt to negotiate peace? Was British Intelligence involved? What was his state of mind at the time? The authors focus on particular aspects of Hess's life that relate to his ability as a pilot. His preparations for the flight and the technical details of the specially modified aircraft are also examined, in order to demonstrate the inaccuracy of some of the conspiracy theories. They also paint a picture of the flight, including the RAF's efforts to shoot Hess down and the difficulties he had in bailing out. The book aims to resolve many of the riddles that still bedevil this bizarre episode of World War II.

About the Author:

Roy Conyers Nesbit has written more than 16 books on aspects of aviation history, including three volumes of The RAF in Camera, Eyes of the RAF, Coastal Command in Action 1939–1945 and RAF: An Illustrated History from 1918.
