It was in Germany where he began his notorious exploits by broadcasting anti Allied propaganda to Britain and trying his upmost to shatter British morale often with wildly inaccurate accounts of how badly our Allied forces were doing. He once broadcast that German Bombers had totally demolished both Folkestone and Dover in one night of bombing.
Joyce was captured in May 1945 while on the run and subsequently brought to Britain for trial although there was much doubt about his nationality and whther he had actually carried out treason as an American, German or as a British subject?
After a long trial he was found guilty of High Treason and sentenced to death by Hanging in January 1946. His wife Margaret was let off on compassionate grounds.
Joyce's story is one of fascination and misplaced loyalties and worthy of a feature film.
