The American secret service tried to spike Hitler's food with female hormones to feminize him.
Now it has come to light that British spies looked at an even more audacious way of derailing the man behind the German war machine - by giving him female sex hormones.
Agents planned to smuggle doses of estrogen into his food to make him less aggressive and more like his docile younger sister Paula, who worked as a secretary.
