Churchill's Secret Enemy

Winston Churchill is widely and rightly admired for his historic fight to save Britain and the West against the threat of Nazi Germany. Drawing on unpublished files and declassified documents Jonathan Pile exclusively reveals new evidence concerning the hitherto secret plots against Churchill which intended to drive him from parliament and deprive him of office. Masterminded by MI5 officer Major Sir George Joseph Ball, the Watergate Style dirty tricks involved illegal phone taps, mail interception, burgulary, and the placing of agents to spy on leading Anti-Nazis like Churchill. Covert campaigns were organised to deprive him of funding, support and smear his reputation. Mr Pile reveals the circle of Ball's friends which extended into high politics, finance, the Media, the Royal Court, as well as far right aristocrats bend on stopping Churchill and reaching a negotiated peace with Adolf Hitler. Ball's circle included Ian Fleming, the Duke of Westminster, Lord Luke, Guy Burgess, Henry Drummond-Wolff, MI5 Deputy Jasper Harker and Far Right Editor Pro-Nazi Henry Newnham. Mr Pile traces the rise of appeasement to culminate in the Rudolf Hess Peace Mission and the mysterious stopping of Big Ben in 1941. This book will interest those who have read the following authors: Martin Gilbert, Michael Dobbs or enjoyed films by Alfred Hitchcock such as Foreign Correspondent or Stephen Poliakoff's Glorious 39 which highlight Joseph Ball's activities. This book exclusively reveals: (As revealed in unpublished letters in the Ball Papers at the Bodelian Library Oxford) Unsolved Murdered Gold Millionaire Bahamas Tax Exile Sir Harry Oakes, whose bludgeoned body was found in his Nassau home in 1943 secretly bankrolled Neville Chamberlain's appeasement of Nazi Germany in 1938 in exchange for a Knighthood. (Contained in a letter in the Drummond-Wolff Papers at Leeds University) Neville Chamberlain using his political fixer Joseph Ball also received funds from a secret fund controlled by the Pro-Nazi Group "The Link" member the Duke of Westminster and Pro-Fascist and friend of Herman Goering Sir Henry Drummond-Wolff. Reputed to have rung out continuously throughout the whole of the Second World War, the iconic symbol of London Big Ben (under the control of BBC Chief Lord Reith at the Ministry of Works) suddenly and mysteriously stopped on the night of June 4th 1941 to be restarted exactly 12 hours later, (a communications technique which was to feature in Ian Fleming's 1965 James Bond Film Thunderball.) Winston Churchill was forced by financial pressure in 1937 to put his beloved home Chartwell up for sale after pro-appeasement British newspapers cancelled his writing contracts over his outspoken opposition to appeasement. New evidence on the arrival of Rudolf Hess - shows that sacked MI5 chief General Sir Vernon Kell recorded the arrival of Hess, 3 days before the newspapers told Britain and that Churchill reported that some "maggots are in the apple" when referring to the involvement of the British in Hess's arrival . Ball's Papers reveal his support for a negotiated peace, his control of the Pro-Nazi Magazine Truth and his offer to Chamberlain to resign and fight the Churchillian Group with a propaganda campaign in 1940. Evidence also points to Ball's darker attempts to stop anti-nazis including involvement in the removal of Hore Belisha, the placing of Anti Churchill poster ads in The Strand, and the forced suicides of an Italian Peace Emissary and honours trafficker in 1943. Whilst Joseph Ball was unable to stop Churchill returning to Power in 1940, he remained a powerful threat first as a head of the Security Executive and as a friend of the head of the Civil Service Sir Horace Wilson. In 1945, Churchill lacking the brilliant election campaign of Joseph Ball which had won the elections of 1924,1931 & 1935 went down to defeat against Labour having won the war . Ball had his revenge, and went onto head the Gold Mining Conglomerate
