Each devoted considerable time and effort to try and win "the battle of the airwaves" ' propaganda sent out over the radio. William Joyce, alias Lord Haw Haw, was one of three main characters on the Axis side. Born in America, Joyce was a Nazi sympathiser who, after gaining a British passport, fled to Germany in 1939 to work on the Nazi propaganda machine. He was never really taken seriously in Britain but nevertheless, after the war he was tried for treason and hanged. Beginning with an informative foreword, this book, published in 1946, records the trial of William Joyce and includes some notes on the trials of other British traitors or collaborators from the war, and their fates.
