In May 1941, Rudolf Hess, Hitler's right-hand man, flew off to England to make peace with the British. His plane crashed in Scotland and he was made a prisoner of the Allies. Hess was immediately locked up and kept in solitary confinement nearly the rest of his life. What truths about the war did Rudolf Hess possess that were of such danger to the Allies? The author of this book worked as a male nurse caring for Rudolf Hess from August 1, 1982 until his murder on August 17, 1987 at the Allied Military Prison in Spandau. On the day of Mr. Hess's death, he commenced his duties as usual. Around 11am on that day, the male nurse left to run some errands. At 2 p.m. he was called to the prison, as there had been "an incident"... The scene he saw looked like a wrestling match had taken place; the entire place was in confusion... The lifeless body of Mr. Hess was lying on the floor of the summerhouse, apparently lifeless. Near to his body stood two unknown U.S. soldiers. The prison guard appeared agitated. He was sweating heavily, his shirt was saturated with sweat, and he was not wearing a tie. The author ask the guard: "What have you done with him" He replied: "The pig is finished; you won't have to work a night shift any longer." During the five years in which Mr. Melaouhi daily cared for Mr. Hess, he was able to obtain an accurate impression of his physical capabilities. Mr. Melaouhi does not consider that it would have been possible for Mr. Hess to have committed suicide by hanging himself, as was later published by the Allied powers. It is clear that he met his death by strangulation, at the hands of a third party. "The Barnes Review" is the only publishing house gutsy enough to publish the book. Several mainstream publishers promising to publish the book and then backing out at the last minute. What is it that is so dangerous about this crime and this book that it scared off big publishing houses? You will have to determine that for yourself.
