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.

You want a real mystery to think about. This effort at uncovering one of the great mysteries of World War II desires your attention. Nowadays we think little of history but many of us are concerned with the hidden policies of our government and other governments at work today. Reading about the possibility of a Hess double makes for interesting reading and shows the possible duplicity of our closest wartime ally, England.
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!
