Reseña del editor:

Imagine Whitehall renamed Adolph Hitler Esplanade, The Arno Breker Gallery of European Art, Hyde Park known as Lawrence of Arabia Park. In Norway monuments erected to Vidkun Quisling and Knut Hamsun. In Romania; squares named in honour of Corneliu Codreanu. Throughout Ireland and the U.S. streets and squares honouring the name of William Joyce. Military defeat is often followed by the character assassination of the fallen foe. For 100 years, after Napoleon's exile, his name was not uttered in England without venomous riposte. Had the Reich triumphed, or a peaceful solution been found in 1940, many figures vilified today might be applauded and honoured in mainstream media, television documentaries, and schoolbooks. Perhaps, Heroes Hang when Traitors Triumph will be a reminder that the victors narrative can and will turn saints into sinners at the stroke of a palace journalist's pen. Here then are the true stories of men whose feats set examples of rare courage and fortitude, yet whose reputations have since been defiled by victors propaganda. Very few people hate Adolph Hitler as they simply do not know the man. What they do hate is a mythical figure that artful propaganda has made him and many others out to be. Heroes Hang when Traitors Triumph will perhaps give a different perspective of former much vilified foes.

Heroes Hang when Traitors Triumph is a reminder that the victors narrative can and will turn saints into sinners at the stroke of a palace journalist's pen. Here then are the true stories of great Europeans whose feats set examples of rare courage and fortitude, yet, whose reputations have since been defiled by victors propaganda. Very few people hate Adolf Hitler as they simply do not know the man. What they do know and hate is a mythical figure that artful propaganda has made him and other fallen foe out to be. The media's fantasy Adolf Hitler simply did not exist. Heroes Hang when Traitors Triumph will perhaps give a different perspective of former much vilified foes.
