Will we ever know? Did they ever record anything he said after he landed in England? Had he landed in the USA during our involvement, Hoover would have taken the credit of capturing him and having him hung. Kinda like the reluctant saboteurs that landed in L.I. NY? There has to be a good book about this somewhere. I don’t think “he was crazy” is the real story. Inquiring minds need to know.
What Hoover might that have been? Ex-President Herbert Hoover?
I bought the book: “The Nazi and the Psychiatrist: Hermann Göring, Dr. Douglas M. Kelley, and a Fatal Meeting of Minds at the End of WWII” by Jack El-Hai, when it was first released. My son now has it. It’s been a while since I read it, but I believe that Hess is mentioned in it as well as other Nazi officers. I bought the hardcover from Amazon. It’s also offered for Kindle.
