It has long been dismissed as the misguided attempt of a madman to make contact with a non-existent British peace party. Based on entirely new material from eyewitnesses, hitherto inaccessible archives, and intelligence sources, Double Standards reveals that:-- Despite official denials, Hess flew to Britain with Hitlers full knowledge.-- There was a substantial British peace party in 1941, which included most of the aristocracy -- and the Royal Family.-- There is substantial evidence that the prisoner who died in Spandau prison was not the real Rudolf Hess.-- The fate of the real Deputy Fuhrer was inextricably linked with that of the Duke of Kent.-- Winston Churchill guilefully used Hess to influence Hitler and change Britains fortunes in the war.
