When Hitler’s deputy Rudolf Hess set off for Britain on a peace mission in May 1941, he launched one of the great mysteries of the Second World War. Had he really acted alone, without Hitler’s knowledge? Who were the British he had come to see? Was British intelligence involved? Award-winning historian Peter Padfield presents striking new evidence that demands the wholesale reappraisal of the episode. For, allied to a powerful argument that Hess must have had both Hitler’s backing and considerable encouragement from Britain, Padfield demonstrates that he also brought with him a draft peace treaty committing Hitler to the evacuation of occupied European countries. Made public, this would have destroyed Churchill’s campaign to bring the United States into the war. Expertly woven into a compelling narrative that touches on Lord (Victor) Rothschild and the Cambridge spy ring, possible British foreknowledge of Operation Barbarossa and the ‘final solution’, MI6’s use of Hess to prevent the bombing of London and the mysterious circumstances of his death in Spandau prison – including the previously unseen witness accounts from that day – Hess, Hitler and Churchill is among the most important history books of recent years.

Bestselling historian Andrew Nagorski “brings keen psychological insights into the world leaders involved” (Booklist) during 1941, the critical year in World War II when Hitler’s miscalculations and policy of terror propelled Churchill, FDR, and Stalin into a powerful new alliance that defeated Nazi Germany. In early 1941, Hitler’s armies ruled most of Europe. Churchill’s Britain was an isolated holdout against the Nazi tide, but German bombers were attacking its cities and German U-boats were attacking its ships. Stalin was observing the terms of the Nazi-Soviet Pact, and Roosevelt was vowing to keep the United States out of the war. Hitler was confident that his aim of total victory was within reach. But by the end of 1941, all that changed. Hitler had repeatedly gambled on escalation and lost: by invading the Soviet Union and committing a series of disastrous military blunders; by making mass murder and terror his weapons of choice, and by rushing to declare war on the United States after Japan’s attack on Pearl Harbor. Britain emerged with two powerful new allies—Russia and the United States. By then, Germany was doomed to defeat. Nagorski illuminates the actions of the major characters of this pivotal year as never before. 1941: The Year Germany Lost the War is a stunning and “entertaining” (The Wall Street Journal) examination of unbridled megalomania versus determined leadership. It also reveals how 1941 set the Holocaust in motion, and presaged the postwar division of Europe, triggering the Cold War. 1941 was “the year that shaped not only the conflict of the hour but the course of our lives—even now” (New York Times bestselling author Jon Meacham).

The first biography of Rudolf Hess since his death in August 1987. Traces Hess's political evolution towards Nazism. He was in Munich in 1919 and joined the anti-Marxist anti-democratic, and antisemitic Thule Gesellschaft. Hess became a disciple of Karl Haushofer and a friend of Dietrich Eckart, editor of the antisemitic newspaper "Auf Gut Deutsch" and later of the "Völkischer Beobachter". He was attracted to Hitler in 1919, becoming an intimate follower and a fervent promoter of Hitler's personality cult. Hess endorsed Nazi racial doctrine and antisemitic propaganda and signed, as Hitler's deputy, anti-Jewish decrees from 1933 to 1938 (although he reportedly protested against the "Kristallnacht" pogrom). Pp. 165ff. deal with his flight to Scotland in May 1941 and its repercussions.

On May 10, 1941, a Scottish farmer spotted a parachutist floating down to a farm near Glasgow. He ran out to find a burning twin-engine Messerschmitt Bf 110 bomber and an injured officer in a German captain’s uniform. The “officer” was none other than Rudolf Hess, Deputy Führer and right-hand man of Adolf Hitler. It soon emerged that Hess wanted to negotiate a peace deal between Britain and Germany. He was held as a prisoner of war for 4 years, convicted of conspiracy and crimes against peace at the Nuremberg Trials, and sentenced to life imprisonment. There have been many colorful conspiracy theories about this episode in history, and now Flight from Reality separates fact from fiction.

On the night of May 10, 1941, a Messerschmitt-110 crash-landed on a remote Scottish hillside. Its pilot was Rudolf Hess, the Deputy-Führer of the German Reich. Hess’ remarkable solo flight was immediately dismissed in both Britain and Germany as the act of a deranged mind. He was disowned by Hitler, and Churchill’s government insisted that his unexpected arrival on British soil was of no lasting consequence. Nevertheless, the mysterious circumstances of the flight, and Hess’ silence during fifty years of imprisonment, have led to endless speculation as to his true motives. Until now, no one has found the crucial pieces of evidence that prove that a small group of men within the British government and intelligence services were, in fact, conducting a brilliantly clever plot that would not only lead to Hess’ flight, but would have a decisive impact on the course of the war and the forces that shaped postwar Britain.
