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.

There is much which is new in this well-written and absorbing study of one of the most fascinating missions in modern history. - IRISH INDEPENDENT
