RUDOLF HESS (1894 - 1987) Nazi German Deputy Fuehrer and second in command after Goering, Hess was one of Hitler's closest confidantes and friends. In an unauthorized peace mission, Hess flew a German fighter to England and surrenedered, purportedly attempting to ally Germany with Great Britain against Russia. His mission, of course, failed and Hess was imprisoned at Spandau where he was found hanged in 1987. Scarce signed book with an excellent association, a compilation of Hess' speeches, his: "Reden" (Munich: Franz Eher Verlag), 266pp. 8vo., Hess' only book, rebound in burgundy leather with gold trim and title on spine, lightly rubbed. On the front flyleaf, Hess inscribes the book to Walther Darre in German: "My old battle comrade R. Walter Darre Christmas 1937 Rudolf Hess" Fine condition. RICHARD WALTHER DARRE (1895-1953) served as Nazi Minister of Food and as head of the notorious Central Office of Race and Resettlement of the SS. In 1945, the American authorities arrested Darré and tried him at the Ministries Trial where he would be ordered to serve seven years.
