Twilight Over England William Joyce - The author was an American-born member of the pre-war British Union of Fascists who defected to Germany at the beginning of World War II. He won fame as the German radio propaganda broadcaster Lord Haw-Haw, and at the height of his fame, had almost as many listeners to his broadcasts in Britain as the BBC. Captured at the end of the war, he was hanged for treason even though he had legally renounced his adopted British citizenship.108p-sc
