Synopsis

Hitler's British Traitors is the first authoritative

account of a well-kept secret: the British Fifth Column and its activities

during the Second World War.















Drawing on hundreds of declassified

official files - many of them previously unpublished - Tim Tate uncovers the

largely unknown history of more than 70 British traitors who were convicted,

mostly in secret trials, of working to help Nazi Germany win the war, and

several hundred British Fascists who were interned without trial on evidence

that they were working on behalf of the enemy. Four were condemned to death;

two were executed.















This

engrossing book reveals the extraordinary methods adopted by MI5 to uncover

British traitors and their German spymasters, as well as two serious wartime plots by

well-connected British fascists to mount a coup d'etat which

would replace the government with an authoritarian pro-Nazi regime.















The book also shows how archaic

attitudes to social status and gender in Whitehall and the courts ensured that

justice was neither fair nor equitable. Aristocratic British pro-Nazi

sympathizers and collaborators were frequently protected while the

less-privileged foot soldiers of the Fifth Column were interned, jailed or even

executed for identical crimes.
