    Daniel Pick, historian and psychoanalyst, tells how, during the Second World War, the Allies used the 'psy' professions to delve into the motivations of the Nazi leadership and the mentality of the 'masses' they led. Focused on the psychiatric examination of Rudolf Hess after his capture, the book explores the role of psychiatry and Freudian analysis in wartime and at the Nuremberg trials, and the shadow it cast on post-war recovery policy and political thinking in the longer term.
