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.

Until now there has been no satisfactory answer to the question of why, in May of 1941, Hitler's deputy Rudolf Hess flew a German fighter plane across the channel to Scotland, crashing at night in a muddy field near Dungavel House. Though Hess had been one of Hitler's closest confidantes he was immediately denounced as a traitor in Berlin. Imprisoned in England, he was questioned by British MI6 and Churchill himself. The documents he had brought with him were confiscated and have not been made public to this day. Hess was tried at Nuremburg at the war's end and imprisoned at Spandau in Berlin, one of only seven former Nazis held there. The other six were all released, but Hess lingered there alone until his death in 1987, possibly by suicide, possibly not. The official report on Hess has always been that he acted alone, but many historians question this conclusion. In Night Flight to Dungavel, award-winning historian Peter Padfield presents striking new evidence that spurs a wholesale reappraisal of the mystery: what actually happened, what role was played by Churchill and British intelligence, and what has been this episode's significance as a real turning point of the war. Expertly woven into a compelling narrative that touches on Nazi sympathizers among the British aristocracy, possible British foreknowledge of the "final solution," and the mysterious circumstances of Hess's death in Spandau prison, Night Flight to Dungavel is among the most important and gripping stories of World War Two.

The intelligence war in Europe during WWII opens the eyes of young American intelligence officer Wesley Hollinger. He does not like what he sees... The Fuehrermaster Spring, 1941. Britain's Prime Minister Winston Churchill is on the verge of being overthrown by an English lobby group of Nazi appeasers who plan to sign a secret pact with Nazi Fuehrer Adolf Hitler to end the war in Europe. Hitler gets wind of the overthrow. He feels that the British group are ready to cut a deal on his terms, and that only one man--his deputy Rudolf Hess--could pull it off for the Fatherland. Through secret channels, Gestapo chief Heinrich Himmler--who has his own ambitions to be Fuehrer--finds out what Hess and Hitler are attempting. Across the channel, Churchill's group is ready. Young hot-shot American intelligence agent, Wesley Hollinger, on loan to the British Secret Service, uncovers Heinrich Himmler's plan to eliminate Hess and plant an imposter... The Filberg Consortium It is late 1941. America has yet to enter the war. A German agent secretly lands in Great Britain with orders from Gestapo chief Heinrich Himmler and financed by I.S. Filberg, the huge German industrial cartel, to identify and kill the prisoner called Rudolf Hess. Meanwhile, in London, American agent Wesley Hollinger discovers a crucial missing section to the first Hess peace papers found near the crash site in Scotland. The paperwork itemizes sensitive Wall Street loans to Nazi war factories -- deals arranged by I.S. Filberg. Hollinger doesn't know who to turn to -- his adopted England or his home country. And thousands of miles away in the Pacific a heavily-armed Japanese Task Force is heading towards Pearl Harbor... Foo Fighters It is early 1945 and Germany is losing the war. The Russians, the Americans, and the British are closing in on Berlin and Hitler's bunker. In this startling end-of-the-war tale two high-ranking Nazi officials, Martin Bormann and Hermann Goering, are collaborating with Wesley Hollinger and the American OSS for free passage out of Germany in exchange for blueprints to advanced German technology -- jet fighters, rockets, missiles and early flying saucers, nicknamed "Foo Fighters". The Americans are desperate to keep the Foo Fighter blueprints from reaching Russian and British hands. Wesley Hollinger of the OSS soon realizes what World War Two is really all about -- power, money, and politics.

Camp Z

Camp Z

Camp Z is a locked-room mystery in which the locked room is a man’s head, and no one is certain whether the mind within it, which holds information that could help change the course of the Second World War, is sane or insane.

On May 10, 1941, Rudolf Hess, then the deputy führer, parachuted over Renfrewshire in Scotland on a mission to meet with the Duke of Hamilton, ostensibly to broker a peace deal with the British government. After being held in the Tower of London, he was transferred to Mytchett Place near Aldershot. The house was fitted with microphones and sound recording equipment, guarded by a battalion of soldiers and code-named Camp Z. Churchill's instructions were that Hess should be strictly isolated, and that every effort should be taken to get information out of him. During the ensuing thirteen months, a psychological battle was waged between intelligence officers using the new Freudian techniques of "dynamic psychologies" and the man who had been a heartbeat away from Hitler. Stephen McGinty uses new documentation and contemporaneous reports, diaries, letters and memos to piece together a riveting account of the claustrophobia, paranoia and highstakes gamesmanship being played out in an English country house. Camp Z is a locked-room mystery in which the locked room is a man's head, and no one is certain whether the mind within it, which holds information that could help change the course of the Second World War, is sane or insane.

#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • The author of The Devil in the White City and Dead Wake delivers an intimate chronicle of Winston Churchill and London during the Blitz—an inspiring portrait of courage and leadership in a time of unprecedented crisis “One of [Erik Larson’s] best books yet . . . perfectly timed for the moment.”—Time • “A bravura performance by one of America’s greatest storytellers.”—NPR NAMED ONE OF THE TEN BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR BY THE EAST HAMPTON STAR AND ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR BY The New York Times Book Review • Time • Vogue • NPR • The Washington Post • The Globe & Mail • Fortune • Bloomberg • New York Post • The New York Public Library • Kirkus Reviews • LibraryReads • PopMatters On Winston Churchill’s first day as prime minister, Adolf Hitler invaded Holland and Belgium. Poland and Czechoslovakia had already fallen, and the Dunkirk evacuation was just two weeks away. For the next twelve months, Hitler would wage a relentless bombing campaign, killing 45,000 Britons. It was up to Churchill to hold his country together and persuade President Franklin Roosevelt that Britain was a worthy ally—and willing to fight to the end. In The Splendid and the Vile, Erik Larson shows, in cinematic detail, how Churchill taught the British people “the art of being fearless.” It is a story of political brinkmanship, but it’s also an intimate domestic drama, set against the backdrop of Churchill’s prime-ministerial country home, Chequers; his wartime retreat, Ditchley, where he and his entourage go when the moon is brightest and the bombing threat is highest; and of course 10 Downing Street in London. Drawing on diaries, original archival documents, and once-secret intelligence reports—some released only recently—Larson provides a new lens on London’s darkest year through the day-to-day experience of Churchill and his family: his wife, Clementine; their youngest daughter, Mary, who chafes against her parents’ wartime protectiveness; their son, Randolph, and his beautiful, unhappy wife, Pamela; Pamela’s illicit lover, a dashing American emissary; and the advisers in Churchill’s “Secret Circle,” to whom he turns in the hardest moments. The Splendid and the Vile takes readers out of today’s political dysfunction and back to a time of true leadership, when, in the face of unrelenting horror, Churchill’s eloquence, courage, and perseverance bound a country, and a family, together.

The novel begins on May 10, 1941 in Scotland. Rupert Garfield, German translator for England's Military Intelligence Section 6 receives a mysterious call to ready himself for work, while on holiday with his family. Within an hour, he is rushed to a farm where Nazi German Deputy Reichsfuerher Rudolf Hess has secretly landed in a Messerschmitt flown from somewhere in Occupied Europe. Within moments, Prime Minister Winston Churchill arrives requiring Garfield's language skills. After an interview, in which Churchill rejects Hess' invitation to unite against the Soviet Union, Hess hands over a letter addressed to the King Edward VIII, who abdicated from the throne to marry Wallis Simpson. Churchill directs a new clandestine secret service known as the Special Operations Executive to prepare Garfield for a trip to the Bahamas to deliver the correspondence to the former King, now the Duke of Windsor and Governour of that British Commonwealth; all in an attempt to have evidence which will detain the seemingly pro-Nazi former King as a traitor. Escaping death and peril, Rupert Garfield delivers the correspondence to surprisingly learn it is a paranormal astrological chart predicting the Duke's future. Historical fact soon mixes with fiction as Rupert Garfield crosses paths with such famed figures as Ian Fleming, Aleister Crowley, Owen Mosely, the Duke of Hamilton, Unity Mitford, Heinrich Himmler, and Reinhard Heydrich, all in an attempt to protect himself from those who want this information to remain secret. Ultimately, Garfield finds that the British Government, through its newly formed Special Operations Executive has dedicated a branch to understanding how the Nazis use the black arts in their military and political decisions, named Occult House. And as Garfield familiarizes himself with the personnel and objectives of Occult House, he is sent on a counter-espionage mission that puts his life and well-being in peril, all while his dealings with the paranormal to bring him to certain realities about his life. These realities become especially lucid as he dangerously comes close to the Schutzstaffel (SS) and its attempts at perverting the furtive occultist brotherhood known as the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn to gain the powers of sorcery, all in an effort to conquer Europe for Adolf Hitler.

The combination of Michael Dobbs' excellent writing skills and historical passion, and the legendary character of Winston Churchill, have provided two triumphantly successful books in WINSTON'S WAR and NEVER SURRENDER. In 1941, the war appears to be going badly on many fronts. Churchill is the confirmed leader and so his domestic political struggles are slightly lessened, but battered, bloody and almost bankrupt, Britain limps on. Churchill knows his country cannot win the war alone. An alliance with America is paramount, and Churchill is determined to develop and use a friendship with Averall Harriman, American Ambassador to Britain, and personal friend of President Franklin Roosevelt. But his son's wife exploits this first. Pamela Churchill's passionate affair, conducted under her father-in-law's roof, presents Churchill with the appalling dilemma between saving his country, and allowing his son Randolph to be cuckolded. With no British battlefield successes, and with a jubilant Germany controlling Europe, 1941 was a bleak year. America continued resolute against fighting, but by the year's close Pearl harbour had forced America into the war. Why had the Japanese been persuaded t
