The Intrigues of Hess and Antarctic Fronts

by: Steve Erdmann

Copyright, C, Steve Erdmann, 2018

Joseph P. Farrell has written numerous books on the Nazi fascist cabal that continued after the Second World War. The conspiracy has been filled with interesting and complex sequels: one of these avenues was the story of the late Rudolf Hess and his May 10, 1941 mystery flight to Great Britain.

Farrell points out that Hess was the one-time Deputy Fuhrer to Adolf Hitler, and was third in succession to become head of state and government after Hitler and reichmaschall Hermann Goring. His book is a long tale of “whys” and “what ifs” in the life of Hess that even entails his possible murder, and also, talk of his “double.” His mission to Britain may have also been to complete an annexation agreement on the Reich’s ownership of Antarctica.

(HESS AND THE PENGUINS: THE HOLOCAUST, ANTARCTICA, AND THE STRANGE CASE OF RUDOLF HESS, Joseph P. Farrell, Adventures Unlimited Press, One Adventure Place, Kempton, Illinois 60946, www.adventuresunlimitedpress.com, This email address is being protected from spambots.

Farrell begins with the “Spandau Hess,” circumstances surrounding his imprisonment and possible murder, if this “Hess” was the real one and not a substitute “doppelganger.” Relying on the works of Peter Radfield and others, Farrell suspects many of the guards and the nurse Aballah Melaouchi as playing interference. Farrell details the various medical orderlies that could have been involved. There was mention of an electrical cord and an autopsy disclosing strangulation marks on Hess’s neck (pp. 15-32).

Hess's son, Wolf Rudiger Hess, also discovered discrepancies in the death of his father. British forensic pathologist and professor of forensic medicine J.M. Cameron performed the autopsy, but was not beyond suspicion:

“…we saw that there were unusual and possible connections between Ewen Cameron, the psychologist who would become such a central component of the postwar CIA’s MK-Ultra mind1 control program,” says Farrell, “and who was the very doctor brought in by Allen Dulles to examine ‘Hess’ at Nuremberg…first, and most infamous example of mind-control on record (pp. 89, 92-93, 253).

This is also confirmed by what Farrell labels the “South African Affidavit” which talked about the American CIA (p. 52).

The Spandau prison was ordered demolished less than 48 hours after Hess’s death.


Farrell relies heavily on the research of Picknett, Prince, and Prior’s Double Standards: The Rudolf Hess Cover-up, and W. Hugh Thomas’s The Murder of Rudolf Hess, and other researchers, such as Hess’s son Wolf Hess.

The bizarre behavior of Hess over the span of his arrest into his trial at Nuremberg and later behaviors suggested a confused and erratic behavior of someone reacting to Mind Control and even the possible use of a Hess “double.” These suspicions appeared to be backed by physical characteristics of Hess’s body, such as war scars and personality traits (pp. 113-115; Hess’s son Wolf Rudiger Hess, Who Murdered My Father, Rudolf Hess, pp. 38-50.)

Likewise, Farrell examines the multiple, many suspicious, reasons for Hess’s May 10, 1941 flight to Great Britain, one being peace overtures and his opposition to Operation Barbarossa. The secret German atomic bomb test near October of 1944 may have been another reason. Hess’s flight may have been to “seal the deal” of peace negotiations that were begun in Sweden, Switzerland and Spain (John Harris, Richard Wilbourn, Rudolf Hess: A New Technical Analysis of the Hess Flight). Another theory was the secret meetings with General Karl Haushofer and his son Albrecht inaugurating a “fusion” of the United Kingdom and the USA. Still yet another theory was that a “coordinated coups d’etat was planned to overthrow both governments.” (pp. 132-146.)

Picknett, Prince and Prior, says Farrell, indicate that high-level meetings were conducted by Albrecht Haushofer, Sir Samuel Hoare, Lord Halifax, and Hess questioning those questioning “Lebensraum,” colonization, and the Holocaust of the Jews. (p. 173.)

“Hess not only was capable of being involved in such a scheme, but there may have been a quiet concerted propaganda campaign,” says Farrell, “to prepare the German people for his assumption of power with a more moderate coalition government, perhaps one, as we have seen, including Goring.” (p. 176.)

Farrell speculates that several things went wrong in the Hess Mess flight, such as the mysterious appearance of a Polish officer, Roman Battaglia, at Glasgow Police Headquarters (p. 187), the sending of and “non-arrival” of a telegram that Hess sent to Aunt Emma Rothacker, and that a SS Obergruppenfuhrer said in May, 1942 that another Hess was being escorted around in Scotland while Hess was also reported in prison; further, there was the presence of a “police” representative who spoke two hours with Hess at Dungavel detention center in Scotland. These are only a few of the many strange incidents and questions surrounding the Hess case (p. 199).

Farrell emphasizes that Hess’s “peace plan” may have had his overtures to also “warn” the British about the on-coming “final solution” on the Jews (p. 224). He lists the mention by Max Nordau (pre-World-War-One), Rabbi Stephen Wise (pre-World-War-One), Ben Hecht and Robert John (pre-Hitler) of “six-million Jews or people.” (p. 228).


Reichmaschall Hermann Goring’s “expedition” of 1938-39 was a first-step plan to “annex” Antarctica to the Reich’s domain. Further comments by Hermann Goring would indicate that the Reich had a ‘post-war-world’ interest in Antarctica, and was “staking a claim.” (p. 240.) This was “rejected” by the Norwegian government, and this ‘dispute’ may have come up in the “Hess Mess.” Picknett, Prince and Prior suspected Hess also came to “conclude” matters of Antarctic ownership (opt. cit, p. 307; Hess and the Penguins, pp. 250-251).

Antarctica had already been a continent of special interest when an American Expedition of 1946-47 codenamed “Operation High Jump” journeyed there.2 The Operation consisted of four thousand people, an aircraft carrier, a submarine, aircraft, helicopters, and special equipment. Admiral Richard Byrd was leader and was accompanied by his son Richard E. Byrd, Jr. The son, Byrd Jr., was found dead on October 9, 1988 on his way to a commemoration of his father.

Admiral Byrd’s expedition was described by him as an “encirclement of conquest’ and an “attack from three fronts.” Quite mysterious was the expedition’s early “retreat.” Just as mysteriously, Farrell shies away from the Chilean newspaper mention of an attack by UFOs, even though there is evidence that a possible UFO attack did take place3 (pp. 241-250).




Farrell gives much credit to authors and researchers such as William Stevenson, Gloria Vitanze Basile, Picknett, Prince, and Prior, John Harris and Richard Wilbourn, Nicholas Goodrick-Clarke, Lynn Pickitt, Clive Prince, Stephen Prior, W. Hugh Thomas, Joscelyn Godwin, and many others.
