Most widely held works by James Hayward
Myths & legends of the Second World War by James Hayward( Book )

26 editions published between 2003 and 2013 in 3 languages and held by 406 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Was the aged prisoner who died in Spandau Prison a double? From tales of betrayal at Dieppe and Arnham to Hitler's obsession with the occult and Nazi U-boat bases in Ireland, the author offers a refreshing and intriguing perspective on the myths, legends and folk memories of the Second World War
Myths & legends of the First World War by James Hayward( Book )

14 editions published between 2002 and 2011 in English and held by 316 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

During the First World War, a rich crop of legends sprouted from the battlefields and grew with such ferocity that many still manage to excite controversy today. This book is the first of its kind to examine the roots of those stories, looking at the reasons behind their creation and revealing the real truth. From the truth behind "Angel of Mons" to establishing if the German aircraft really dropped poisoned sweets in an attempt to kill British children, James Hayward retells the story of each myth and examines the likely explanations
An account of the life and travels in the work of the ministry, of John Fothergill by John Fothergill( )

11 editions published in 1754 in English and held by 233 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Double agent Snow by James Hayward( Book )

3 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 154 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

On the eve of the outbreak of the Second World War the double-agent Arthur Owens, codenamed SNOW, is summoned to Berlin and appointed Hitler's chief spy in Britain. Days later he finds himself in Wandsworth prison, betrayed by the wife he traded for a younger model, and forced to transmit false wireless messages for MI5 to earn his freedom - and avoid the hangman's noose. A vain and devious anti-hero with no moral compass, Owen's motives were status, money and women. He mixed fact with fiction constantly, and at times insisted that he was a true patriot, undertaking hazardous secret missions for his mother country; at other times, Owens saw himself as a daring rogue agent, outwitting British Intelligence and loyal only to the Fatherland. Yet in 1944, as Allied troops stormed the beaches of Normandy on D-Day, Hitler was caught unawares, tricked into expecting the invasion across the Pas de Calais in a strategic deception played out by Owens and the double-cross agents of MI5. For all his flaws, Agent Snow became the traitor who saved his country. Based on recently de-classified MI5 files and previously unpublished sources, Double Agent Snow is the story of a secret Battle of Britain, fought by Snow and his opposing spymasters, Thomas 'Tar' Robertson of MI5 and Nikolaus Ritter of the Abwehr, as well as the tragic love triangle between Owens, his wife Irene, and his mistress Lily Funnell. The evocative, fast-paced narrative moves from seedy south London pubs to North Sea trawlers, from chic Baltic spa resorts to Dartmoor gaol, populated by a colourful rogue's gallery of double-cross agents
