Goering sent fighters to stop him but he was long gone. Arrested and tried at Nuremberg, he would die by his own hand in 1987, aged 93. That's the official story. Ever since, conspiracy theories have swirled around the famous mission. How strong were his connections with the British establishment, including royalty? Was the death of the king's brother the Duke if York associated with the Hess overture for peace? In the several books on Hess, one obvious line of inquiry has been overlooked until now - an analysis of the flight itself: the flight plan, the data sheets, the navigation system. Through their investigation over many years, the authors come to a startling conclusion. The Luftwaffe was fully aware of the flight and therefore - so was the Nazi high command. The implications are far reaching and lend credence to the theory that the British establishment has hidden the truth of British/Nazi communications, partly to spare the reputations of members of the Royal Family"--Publisher's description."@en ;
