Rudolf Hess the man who died twice / A&E Television Networks.

Publication | Library Call Number: VHS-0574

This much is known: Rudolf Hess knew Adolf Hitler when they were students, was one of the most important members of the Nazi party in its early years, and was arrested on May 10th, 1941, after parachuting into a Scottish field. Virtually everything else about Hess has been the subject of controversy for over half a century. HISTORY'S MYSTERIES draws on declassified documents, extraordinary interviews and news accounts to uncover the true story about the enigmatic Nazi who spent 46 years in jail. Strong evidence suggests he was not, as both Churchill and Hitler contended, a madman who had acted alone in coming to England, but rather, was engaged on a secret peace mission with Hitler's full knowledge and the complicity of highly placed British authorities. And we'll examine claims that prisoner #7 in Spandau was not Hess, but a double. There is little doubt that the official story presented by the authorities is not accurate. RUDOLF HESS presents more credible versions and attacks the inconsistencies and lies that have long been presented as the truth.
