The Last Days of Hitler

£5.99

Product description

In September 1945, when the fate of Hitler was perplexing everyone, an Oxford historian was appointed to find an d examine all available evidence, and his report was the basis of an official statement in November 1945. In consequence of this investigation, a great deal of evidence was discovered about a dark period of history: the last days of Hitler and his court, in the period when it had become (in the words of one of its members) "half cloister, half camp".

Now the same writer has used full details of that almost incredible story. The book sheds light on many other problems besides the original question of Hitler's death: the Plot of 20th July, 1944; Hitler's routine and health; the changes in his character; his relations with the generals; Goebbels' programme of universal destruction; the revolt of Hitler's technical genius, Speer; the fantastic character, manoeuvres, and hesitations of Himmler; the struggle for the succession; the fall of Goering; the patient intrigues of Bormann, who wished to continue in power after Hitler's death.

All this is described in a full and authoritative manner; and the story, which culminates in the suicide and ritual burning of Hitler and Eva Braun, as described by eye-witnesses, and the dispersal of the rest of the court in a vain attempt to break through the Russian lines, is enacted against a grotesque background: a court of toadies, quack-doctors, and astrologers, and an underground bunker in Berlin.

Published March 1947
