Abstract

On January 3, 1946, William Joyce, better known to W. W. II England as Lord Haw-Haw, became the last man to be hanged for high treason in Great Britain. American born and a naturalized Irish citizen, Joyce was convicted in a British court of aiding Nazi Germany as a radio propaganda broadcaster from 1940 to 1945. Although legally never a British citizen, and having become a naturalized German in 1940, Joyce was still determined to have been under British jurisdiction. This paper explores the circumstances of his actions and execution.
