May 10, 1941. A Scottish ploughman spotted a parachutist floating to the ground on a field just a dozen miles south of Glasgow. He ran out to find a burning twin-engine Messerschmitt bomber and an injured officer in the uniform of a German Air Force Captain. The aviator asked to be taken to see the Duke of Hamilton for whom, he claimed, he was carrying an important message. The man was none other than Rudolf Hess, Deputy Fuhrer and right-hand man of Adolf Hitler. Hess had not come as Hitlers emissary but was acting alone in seeking to negotiate a peace deal between Britain and Germany. Held as a prisoner of war and convicted as a war criminal at Nuremberg. Hess spent the rest of his life in a high-security prison in Berlin-Spandau where he committed suicide in 1987, aged 93
