WHY HESS FLEW: A NEW

WHY HESS FLEW: A NEW VIEW discusses a conspiratorial interpretation of Rudolf Hess’ flight to Britain in 1941, suggesting that Hess wanted to broker a peace with the West in advance of the German invasion of Russia (to avoid fighting in two fronts). The author argues that Hess failed because his plane crashed, making the planned secret meeting public. This could form an interesting starting point for Yet Another “What If The Nazis Would Win” alternate history.
