The royal family used to work with secret British agents to create a bond between England and the Nazi, while the Duke of Windsor would give away information to help Hitler. Also worth mentioning the death of Heinrich Himmler who was murdered under Winston Churchill’s command.
Clearly elaborated in historian’s Martin Allen book trilogy, the compromising documents would write a wrong version of history, supported by exaggerated arguments from the author, and surviving a lengthy period of time.
Information used in Allen’s books was found around 2000, with investigations being carried on to 2005, when officials finally put their hands on a stash of 29 fake documents.
Martin Allen was believed to be the only one to have seen the files in which the documents stayed hidden for so long. Police investigations were going on for 13 months before the Crown Prosecution Service stopped harassing Allen, mainly because of his fragile health condition.
Allen on the other side, kept denying being involved in the plot and refusing to comment on the charges, The Guardian reports.
A later stage of the investigation revealed numerous inaccuracies, the use of a laser printer, fake signatures and occasionally, a very clear modern use of the language.
Another acclaimed idea, suggestively exposed by Martin Allen in his book – Hidden Agenda, suggested that the Germans would have been helped by the Duke of Windsor to take over France, by sharing secrets with the Nazi party through a German spy.
A year later, even more infected documents were used in Allen’s theories to emphasize the facts and motives of Rudolf Hess’s escape to Scotland in 1941.
The third book would finally accuse Winston Churchill as being voluntary involved in Himmer’s death, stating that Himmer didn’t actually commit suicide, but that he was killed on Churchill’s orders.
The same book also included a letter that was supposedly written by a Foreign Office official, on his name – John Wheeler-Bennett, in which he was discussing the Himmler situation.
“Steps will therefore have to be taken to eliminate him as soon as he falls into our hands,” read the letter.
Allen’s claims would later be criticized by witness Louise Atheron as being exaggerated and based on a “very fluid evidence” in the writing of his own version of history.
David Thomas, a chief information officer of the National Archives insisted that any false statements that could compromise the genuine aspect of the historical information, it’s being handled very carefully.
“This is a one-off case, both nationally and internationally. The papers we’ve released show how seriously we took the situation,” said a spokesperson.
