He was the Deputy Fuehrer, the man who took down MEIN KAMPF as Hitler dictated it in prison. And he died on August 18th, 1987 at the age of 93; the only prisoner in Spandau Prison, and the last living member of Hitler's inner circle.

Hess, born in Alexandria, Egypt, was a pilot in the First World War. An early member of the Thule Society, and something of a muddleheaded mystic, Hess was an early follower of Hitler, and early member of the Nazi Party. A participant of the Beer Hall Putsch, Hess followed Hitler to prison, where he became one of Hitler's secretaries transcribing and editing [to a degree] Hitler's dictation of MEIN KAMPF.

A member of the inner circle, Hess' power was strengthened when he married the chief 'judge' of the Nazi Party Court, Major Walter Buch. He was named Deputy Fuehrer, and put in charge of the Party machinery, but in the elbowing for power, and in the wielding of it, Hess was a parveneu. and despite being Deputy Fuehrer, Hess was eclipsed by Hermann Goering, who Hitler named as his successor, and in the party apparatus by Martin Bormann.

By 1941, Hess was in almost total eclipse [so was his father-in-law]. Sickened by the impending invasion of the U.S.S.R while Germany was still at war with Great Britain, Hess took it upon himself to fly an Me 110 to Britain, to seek an armistice or treaty with Britain. Farce turned to tragedy. The British held Hess in the tower of London, and Hitler ordered him executed if he fell into German hands.

Yet Hess' foolishness probably saved his life. when the smoke cleared in 1945, Hess was still alive, and Hitler was dead.

Hess was tried as one of the principal war criminals at Nuremburg, with Hitler, and Himmler dead, and Bormann tried in absentia, and found guilty of plotting to wage aggressive warfare, and crimes against humanity. He was sentenced to life in prison.

On August 17th, 1987, Hess, the sole prisoner in Nuremburg was found hanged in a shed in the exercise yard. He was 93
