Abraham Lincoln: Part 1: “Crimes And Conspiracies”

“My concern is not whether God is on our side but my greatest concern is to be on God’s side.” A safe answer, it seems. One hundred and fifty-two years ago on Good Friday, April 14th 1865, Mrs Mary Todd Lincoln (by the way she ...

Abraham Lincoln: Part 2: “High Drama At The Ford Theatre”

As the wounded and now-expiring president lay awkwardly on the carpet of the crowded box, there was an air of pain and panic from those standing helplessly around him, most of them uncertain and unprepared as to what is happening. However, outside the theatre John ...

Abraham Lincoln: Part 3: “The Ghost Train”

As the slain president’s “creepy” corpse on display embarked on that sombre and single hometown journey to Springfield, the war-weary nation mourned and waited. Apparently, the corpse travelled on a newly constructed presidential steam engine to be known as the “Dean Richmond”. It also boasted ...

Abraham Lincoln: Part 4: “Arrests And Trial Of The Co-Conspirators”

Edwin Stanton’s “show trial” was to be performed behind military walls (naturally), and with a supporting cast headed by nine distinguished decorated generals, no less. Amazingly, only one apparently had qualified as a lawyer, that being Lew Wallace of “Ben Hur” fame. In the meantime, ...

Abraham Lincoln: Part 5: “The Verdict And The Aftermath”

At 11.00 am on July 6th 1865, the fate of the eight accused co-conspirators were brought by a horseback rider to the old arsenal prison in four sealed envelopes from Edwin Stanton’s war department. It was not encouraging news for the frightened and waiting accused: ...

Admiral Wilhelm Canaris: “Hitler’s Spy Chief, A Man Of Mystery”

The remarkable thing about this diminutive Admiral was that his numerous enemies in the murky Nazi waters of the Fatherland didn’t somehow scuttle the bows of his leaking spy ship much sooner than they did. Indeed the naked audacity of the Admiral, albeit in supplying ...

Adolph Eichmann: “Hitler’s Desk Murderer”

Fifty years ago the trial commenced in a blaze of news publicity in Jerusalem City of Adolph Karl Eichmann. As the proceedings slowly commenced he was about to plead for mercy from the court and to cap it all from the “despised race” he had ...

Albert Speer: “Prisoner Number Five And His Three Lives”

This year sees the thirtieth anniversary of the death in London of Hitler’s favourite architect and close friend, Albert Speer. Today Speer remains the most controversial and perhaps the most enigmatic of the so-called “Hitler’s Henchmen.” More important to us was this man aware of ...

Alfred Rosenberg: “The Man And The Nazi Myth”

Born on January 12th 1893 (and strangely enough, he shared his birthday with Hermann Goering, and if Goering hadn’t conveniently cheated the hangman at Nuremberg, Alfred Rosenberg would have been executed on the same day alongside Goering.) Born in the Baltic state of Estonia, to lower-middle-class ...

Allen Welsh Dulles: “Spymaster Extraordinaire”

When Arthur Seyss-Inquart (party number 6270392) eagerly enlisted into the fledgeling Nazi party in 1931, he was eligible as a practising lawyer to promote the political aims of Hitler’s warped vision of a Germany liberated from Jews, Freemasons, Socialists and other fierce opponents. Like his ...

Bobby Kennedy: “A New World Man”?

Captain Ernst Rohm: “Hitler’s Gay Tin Soldier”

From first appearances, Ernie Rohm always reminds me of an Oliver Hardy look-alike, but slightly slimmer, no offence to “Olly” of course. But as party member, number 122, he was pretty near to Hitler, with each of them using the familiar “thou” in conversation with each ...

Conti And Ley: “Hitler’s Doctors of Death Who Beat The Rap”

Doctor Thomas Barnardo: “What Is His Legacy Today?”

This year on October 14th to be precise will be the 68th anniversary of the death by suicide of perhaps Germany’s most famous wartime soldier, Erwin Rommel. Rommel was born in 1891 and was I suppose always destined to become a serving soldier. In fact, as ...

Fritz Sauckel: “Hitler’s Slave Driver”

Fritz Sauckel’s (party number 1395) delicate defence when the horror scroll of forced slave labour atrocities was read out to him by the prosecution at Nuremberg (and much of it on his personal orders) was simply: “I’m a sailor, not a politician.” Well maybe this nautical nazi had ...
