‘RAF made botched bid on Kaiser’s life’

Explosive revelation by Cyprus Today columnist in his new book

‘RAF made botched bid on Kaiser’s life’

Britain launched a botched bid to kill Germany’s leader Kaiser Wilhelm II in the final year of the First World War a century ago, a new book by TRNC resident and Cyprus Today columnist John Hughes-Wilson has revealed.

Previously unpublished evidence contained in the book showed that Britain launched a secret bombing raid on June 2, 1918.

It was exposed after author, leading military historian and retired colonel Hughes-Wilson said he was handed a “historical treasure trove” by a visitor he took on a battlefield tour, containing details of his great uncle’s air force service — including the “breathtaking claim” of the secret British mission, complete with maps, aerial photographs and even a detailed flight plan.
