Operation Foxley was the name of the secret plan supported by Winston Churchill to assassinate Hitler in 1944-45. Different methods of assassination were considered, such as a sharpshooter or poisoning, through to a more elaborate plan that included hypnotism.

I’m joined by Eric Lee.

Eric has been with us before, in episode 130, to discuss the Georgian uprising against the Germans on the Dutch island of Texel at the end of the war. His new book is Britain’s Plot to Kill Hitler: The True Story of Operation Foxley and SOE.
