Peter Fotis Kapnistos Examines Hitler's Doubles in New Book

Was the brutal dictator of the 20th century the masked instrument of a double image delusion? Recently released war records reveal "political decoys" (doppelgangers or body-doubles). It is documented that the Nazi Fuhrer vetted at least four doubles. Look-alikes and crisis actors were used to impersonate Hitler in order to draw attention away from him and to deal with risks on his behalf.

"Hitler's Doubles," a new book by Peter Fotis Kapnistos, details their names, their peacetime occupations, their deaths, and an escape to South America.

Hitler's Doubles covers modern history events: The assassination of JFK, the Watergate scandal, the Iran hostage crisis, the Iran-Contra affair, the collapse of the Soviet Union, the attacks of 9/11, the appearance of the Islamic State... with their cloaked backing of ex-Nazi interests.
