Myths & Legends of the Second World War

eBook - 2009
Rate this:
World War II 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. These stories and more are compiled and analyzed in this fascination collection.
