At last one of the greatest mysteries of World War II has been solved. Since historian Hugh Trevor-Roper made his name with the publication of Hitler's Last Days, it has been accepted that the Nazi leader killed himself as Allied troops closed in. Many have suspected that the story was incomplete; now, with the help of previously unpublished documents from the KGB archives, one of the last great secrets of World War II can be revealed. With testimony from Germans and Russians who participated in the battle for the Reichstag, and evidence from those sent to arrest the Fuhrer, Hitler's Death pieces together the astonishing truth of the final days of Nazism. Surrounded by secrecy, this book also includes a detailed examination of the complete diaries of Martin Bormann, and graphic new evidence from Hitler's inner circle. This revelatory work provides a unique insight into the death throes of the Third Reich, and is guaranteed to cause controversy.
