Hewitt Moore
Far-fetched... The whole premise of the books is his lack of seeing a battle wound on the torso of Hess. He never gave him an examination and just briefly saw him undress.
Mark C. Jackson
Interesting book with interesting proposals and theories. True? I don't know, but if so, what a wonderful achievement on the behalf of the German military.

I once worked with a man who spent some time at Spandau as a US military advisor, and said that he saw the "Hess prisoner" many times, and in his humble opinion, it was the real Hess.

either way, a good and interesting mind tingling read.
Based on apparent discrepancies in a routine medical examination of Rudolf Hess (being held in Spandau Prison), the author came to the conclusion that the man he examined was not the real Hess, but his double. A fun theory, but not particularly convincing.

Absolutely fascinating! But we'll never know for sure, unless someone invents a time machine, whether the man who flew over to England from Germany was really Hess or not. And was it suicide or murder? Intriguing!
