The Second World War gave rise to a rich crop of legends, many of
which persist in the public consciousness today. Some are well
known, such as the escape of an undead Hitler to South America,
Allied aircraft buzzed by 'Foo Fighters' and UFOs, German
parachutists dressed as nuns, and a failed German invasion of
Suffolk in 1940. Others are more subtle, such as the vaunted
Dunkirk spirit, which portrayed the disaster of 1940 as a victory,
and the conspiracy theories surrounding Rudolf Hess. Did he fly to
Scotland to negotiate a peace treaty with memebers of the Royal
Family? 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, James Hayward
offers a refreshing and intriguing perspective on the myths,
legends and folk memories of the Second World War.
