Nazi sniper shoots dead ‘American Hitler’

A graphic depiction of a smoking gun


George Lincoln Rockwell was the leader of the American Nazi party until two bullets ripped into his head and chest.

He had been driving away from a shopping centre when the sniper fired from the rooftop of a beauty salon.

His assassin was his former captain who had been expelled for being off message.

George Rockwell’s message was that all blacks should be deported to Africa and every Jew dispossessed and sterilised.
