His plans for peace talks were quickly rebutted, and so began his 46-year incarceration. Hesss imprisonment is one of the most widely discussed mysteries of created in the ice in the war. Some claim he was imprisoned because of the damage any revelations he possessed would inflict on the British monarchy. Others claim that Britains refusal Neuschwabenland, of his peace proposal led to the nations huge losses territorially, materially, financial- ly and emotionally; because of his silencing, the British people never heard the peace after Hitlers death terms or learned how beneficial they may have proved.

Rudolph Hess was also an active member of the Thule Society, and his interest in Antarctica would have been on both personal and professional levels. Hess, a keen aviator, used his position in both the Nazi Party and the Thule Society to meet Richard Byrd when he lectured the personnel who were heading for the Antarctic with Part 2 of 3 the Deutsche Antarktische Expedition (German Antarctic Expedition) in 1938, and through his channels Hess would have known everything that had been discovered in Neuschwabenland. Byrd, a living legend throughout the world for being the first man to fly over both the north and south poles, was possibly the most well-informed polar explorer ever, and he divulged his vast knowledge and details of his exploits to the Nazis.
