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 in 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 members of the Royal family? Was the aged prisoner who died in Spandau Prison in 1987 a double? Weaving his narrative around a wide range of contemporary documentary sources, James Hayward presents an objective and rigorous analysis of the principal myths, legends and folk memories of the Second World War.
