Riassunto: The authors reveal how, for 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. Long dismissed as the misguided attempt of a madman to make contact with a non-existent British peace party, "Double Standards" shows that Hess's peace mission was one of the pivotal events of the 20th 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. Perhaps even more shockingly, the book reveals that members of the Royal Family itself - whose involvement in the Hess affair, the authors say, has been "airbrushed" out of history - were at the heart of this group. Exposing the wartime propaganda that still masquerades as fact, and based on new material from eyewitnesses, hitherto inaccessible archives and intelligence sources, the book reveals that Hess's peace mission was of supreme importance and raises some of the most intriguing questions about the history of the 20th century. The authors' mission is to answer them.
Dall'editore: 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.
