Princes of Darkness is a unique illustrated account of the careers of the two 'fighting princes' of the Luftwaffe's night fighter force, Heinrich Prince zu Sayn-Wittgenstein and Egmont Prince zur Lippe-Weissenfeld, whose lives were often inter-connected. This book is the result of many years research on the part of its author, Claire Rose Knott, who has been granted unprecedented access by the princes' respective families to never before published diary notes, personal correspondence, logbooks, and family photographs. The work also benefits from research in archival resources, technical data and recollections supplied by the Princes' night fighter contemporaries. The text contains first-hand accounts by family, friends and fellow officers who offer unique accounts of the ambition, intensity and actions of the leading characters in time of war. The Princes have courted controversy with several conspiracy theories abounding regarding their deaths.The plausibility of such theories when viewed against their aristocratic family backgrounds and placed against the backdrop of intense social upheaval under the Nazi regime, merit investigation.
