For August 17, 2007. Twenty years ago today, Rudolf Hess, the last surviving member of Adolf Hitler's inner circle and sole inmate of Spandau Prison for twenty years, died at the age of 93. I talk a little about Hess' life, times and death; and how my interest in history began with a little book called 'The Rise and Fall of Adolf Hitler.'
Today's episode music is from 'House of the Dead,' by Scott Shannon. Our theme music is composed and performed by Marc Rose.
