Both the title of this book, and the subtitle of The Secret German Plot to Kill Churchill are a little on the hysterical side but it’s a fascinating story all the same.
At the outbreak of WWII the leaders of the many fascist groups in Britain were incarcerated but, by late 1944, with the war irreversibly going the way of the Allies, they were released. However, when Hitler planned the Battle of the Bulge offensive he also order mass breakouts from German prisoner of war camps, urging his Nazi followers to head for London to assassinate Churchill. This is the entertaining story of those breakouts and how close the die-hard Nazis got.
