Kurzbeschreibung

September 1996
For the past fifty years the Iron Curtain and the Cold War have prevented the truth from being told about one of the most enduring mysteries of the twentieth century: how, exactly, Adolf Hitler died on April 30, 1945, and what happened to his remains. In this groundbreaking book, which reads like a riveting detective story, Ada Petrova and Peter Watson provide the answers to these two questions. Given access to the Russians' hitherto unseen Hitler Archive - File I-G-23, the so-called Operation Myth File - they reveal not only the truth of what went on in Berlin in May 1945 after the Russians captured the bunker in which Hitler, Eva Braun, and their entourage spent their last days, but also why the Soviet regime felt the details of the Fuhrer's death had to be kept secret for so long. Further, they explain how and why his body and those of Braun, Josef and Magda Goebbels, and the Goebbels' six children were secretly buried in Magdeburg, East Germany, and finally disinterred and cremated in 1970 by order of the then KGB chief Yuri Andropov. Besides the Myth File, Petrova and Watson have also been given access to much more: unpublished interrogations that the Russians conducted of those close to Hitler - including his pilot, his valet, and the commander of the bunker; new forensic evidence from the secret autopsies carried out on the bodies of Hitler, Braun, and the Goebbels; photographs from Hitler's private album; and some thirty-six unpublished watercolors that Hitler painted in his youth and that he kept with him right up to the end in the bunker. Most sensationally, however, they have been shown, and allowed to examine, fragments of Hitler's skull that the Russians have had in theirpossession since 1945. The location of the bullet hole in one of the fragments and the results of an independent forensic examination settle once and for all the manner of Hitler's death.

The book Was he? by Miguel Rodriguez, has a teory of how Hitler scapes from the bunker in 1945. Even in Ada Petrova affirme that a forence doctor said that is impossible that Eva Braun's curpse founded was hers. In Was he? Chapter 12 resolve some misteries in Petrova book. Why Hitler change his all life physician Dr. Morell to Dr. Ludwig Stumpffeger, Why did Hitler called Robert Ritter von Greim in and exposed him by making him fly over half Germany, where the enemy's military aircrafts were flying in constant vigilance? Why so many German fighter planes were used to protect the airplane of von Greim, many of them shoot down during the trip, so that Hitler would tell him what he could have told him over the phone?. Why Hitler send to murder Hermann Fegelein who was husband of Braun's sister and Eva Braun don't even blink? Why the pick Walter Wagner to solemnize the marriage? If it took them a while to locate him it was because of the bombing to which Berlin was being subject. It would have been easier and less risky to use any other registrar, because in the the other Bunker, next to that of the Führer, they could have found someone suitable and the required documentation. Why when Hitler and Braun enter in the room to take "suicide", he has to go out of his chambers once more and to say goodbye for a second time. What is it? he repent or was not really willing to die? Why they found "Hitler's corpse with the shot and the scyanide capsule at the same time? Every thing is answer in This book.

Format:Taschenbuch
This book is disorganized and the various topics, although related, are not cemented together with anything resembling a well-thought out, well-written structure. In what direct way, for instance, are Hitler's water colors related to the circumstances of his death? This book's most important information (who found Hitler's body, how Hitler died, where Hitler was buried, something I found of particular interest) should have been summarized in a two-page weekly news magazine article somewhere. Obviously, however, the authors felt that to read their exclusive but well-padded research should cost at least $20 or so, therefore, here it is, in book form. History buffs may want this book for the inserts and for what few pages actually contain fresh, well-presented information, but the curious who just want to know more about Hitler's last days should visit their library or borrow a copy from a friend-- who, I'm sure, won't mind lending it out.

Von rickler
Format:Taschenbuch
The book seeks to explain and verify Hitler's death by examining "new, secret" Russian archives. The first section of the book summarizes previous books and attempts to answer the questions surrounding Hitler's death. Readers familiar with the subject may find this section repetitive and boring. The second section tries to use "new evidence" to explain how, where, when Hitler died. However, there is nothing particularly new about it. Trevor-Roper's book "The Last Days of Hitler" is a more efficient and interesting book in this subject. The third section, is the most interesting. It contains descriptions of Hitler's never seen before paintings and photos, and offers insights into Hitler's mindset, although the authors' arguments are not really convincing. Overall, not a bad leisure reading book, but don't quote from it if you are writing a history paper.

2.0 von 5 Sternen Interesting, BUT...Disappointing 24. Juli 2000
Format:Taschenbuch
This is a fascinating topic, a real detective story for one of history's mysteries. (Though the mystery angle is not so great, just some minor twists and turns.) There is much in this volume that has been covered before---and done better (Trevor-Roper and O'Donnell, for example). The authors' arguments are poorly stated, disjointed, repetitive, and not particularly convincing. (Though they are probably---more or less---correct.) There's a rushed, let's-get-this-one-together-fast feel to the book (it's typos are both numerous and inexcusable). Essentially, what we've got going here is a refresher course. Interesting enough, but the billing far exceeds what's delivered between the covers.

2.0 von 5 Sternen Nothing new, errors abound 15. Juni 2003
Von Candace Scott - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Verifizierter Kauf
Though this book is impressively packaged and appears authoritative, it's anything but. The authors are pop historians who specialize in fiction and their weaknesses show throughout. There is almost no basic understanding of Hitler, his life, his personality or placing him in the proper historical context. There are a number of small, but nagging errors. Example: Hitler was punctilious in his personal hygiene, took two baths daily and was a fanatic about keeping clean. This is attested to by all who knew him. However, the authors claim that Hitler's architect, Albert Speer, claims Hitler had horrible B.O. (a claim he never made)and they repeat this canard three times.
Their examination of how Hitler died is similarly flawed and dated. It doesn't matter if bunker personnel like Baur, Linge and Kempka all have small discrepancies in their narratives, the fact remains that Hitler shot himself in the head and simultaneously took cyanide while Eva Braun took cyanide. End of story. The pages of padded material on Hitler's death drone on and tell the reader nothing new whatsoever.
As for the Russian archives and the supposedly flashy "new" material they unearthed... forget it. The new materials are a photo of Hitler's uniform jacket, some common photos and a sketch book of watercolors which the authors claim were all executed by Hitler. This ludicrous assertion is proven false by the inclusion of a postcard of Haus Wachenfeld which they claim Hitler painted in the 30's! The color photo of the postcard clearly shows it was never painted by Hitler.
This is a disappointing book for serious historian and novice alike. There is nothing new to justify its purchase.

4.0 von 5 Sternen The Death of Hitler is a short introduction to the evil Fuhrer's final days in the Berlin Bunker 24. Juli 2011
Von C. M Mills - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
The Death of Hitler is a short book dealing with the suicide of Adolf Hitler (1889-1945) on April 30 at about 3:30 PM.
Joining Hitler in suicide was his new wife Eva Braun Hitler. The couple had been married at midnight on April 29. The gruesome end of the cruel HIlter reminds one the conclusion of a fiery Wagnerian Ring Cycle opera!
The book is co-authored by Ada Petrova a Russian TV journalist from Moscow and Peter Watson a columnist and novelist who lives in London.
This 1995 book deals with some of the many controversies dealing with Hitler's suicide. The Soviets asserted that Hitler killed himself through poison; many Western historians contend Hitler died by shooting himself in the temple. The authors conclude that Hitler bit down on a glass poisoned capsule while simultaneously shooting himself. Eva Braunn died by biting down on a poisoned capsule. This sequence was first enunciated by British historian Hugh Trevor-Roper. Joseph Goebbels and Magda Goebbels also died by their own hands; the six Goebbel children were also poisoned. HItler's skull resides in Moscow.
The book is not the most thrilling one you may choose but it does have basic information about the death of one of the worst dictators in human history.

2.0 von 5 Sternen Much rehash with very little relevant new stuff 30. Mai 1998
Von Ein Kunde - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
I was disappointed to read this loosely knitted book of warmed up previous information mixed with a bit of new stuff much of which was rather unrelated to the title and the advertising hype. Sorry.
