Description
There is now little doubt that MI6 were heavily involved in the Hess affair and this involvement is here clearly described and explained. What is not clear is whether MI6 was acting alone, outside of the incumbent Churchill government, in an attempt to offer a viable peace between Nazi Germany and factions within Great Britain. In order to enter into a negotiated settlement, MI6 recruited a Finnish art historian, Tancred Borenius, and sent him to Switzerland in January 1941. Additionally, the role of the Polish government in exile is closely examined, in particular Józef Retinger, the arch federalist. The evidence suggests that a separate peace was being negotiated outside of governmental channels. That is why Hess flew to Scotland.
