As war raged in Europe a British subject broadcast Nazi propaganda over the airwaves. “Germany calling, Germany calling,” William Joyce (pictured) announced in his comical upper-class drawl from a Hamburg studio. Predicting disaster for Britain and its allies and victory for Germany, Joyce – dubbed “Lord Haw Haw” – incensed the authorities with his treacherous doom-laden talk. Born in New York to an Irish father and English mother, Joyce had spent years living in England before moving to Germany in 1939 to do Hitler’s work. At the war’s end, in 1945, the British got their hands on the notorious traitor and he found himself at the Old Bailey in a battle for his very survival.
