Twilight Over England was written by William Joyce in early 1940; that is, shortly after Britain's declaration of war against Germany. More commonly known as Lord Haw-Haw, the British 'traitor' who worked for German radio, there was much more to Joyce than the character portrayed by Allied propaganda and post-war vengeance. Here Joyce explains his conception of a specifically British National Socialism, his commitment to Crown and Empire, and the history of England's takeover by international finance, the real enemy of all nations. He shows in a manner very relevant to the present, the ways by which the international bankers work, why they forced a war on Germany, and the development of Free Trade capitalism, the system that has continued to intrude on every corner of the world with ever more aggression since its victory in 1945. The charges of treason and his hanging are considered against the fact that he was never a British citizen, and the legality of his execution remains highly contentious. A thorough introduction by Kerry Bolton backgrounds Joyce's life, and reveal the courage, honour, humanity and idealism of Joyce's character.
