Customer Reviews

Very well written and exceptionally researched.
Amazon Customer
What is perplexing is that the authors are not palookas - they raise serious questions but present nonsensical and non peer-reviewed answers.
Mark Carolla
This is a good book and has a lot of historical facts to support the argument of the authors.

As one who has been reading and wondering about German history for the better part of forty years, I picked up Grey Wolf on first sighting. I was hoping for an intriguing new viewpoint on the the end of the Third Reich and the ultimate fate of its Führer. Sadly, I found the book lacking in many ways.

The first problem I had was the method of citation. Endnotes are annoying enough as it is, but the way Messrs. Dunstan and Williams chose to format theirs is maddening in the extreme. There are no superscript numbers indicating citations; one is forced to look up the note by the relevant line of text. Also, many of the lines I wanted to look up were missing from the notes; on the first page of the Preface is written that the "famous `Hitler Skull' fragment held in Moscow for decades has finally been DNA tested," yet there is no citation given for that rather crucial tidbit. Even some passages given such citation are lacking; for example on page 157, in support of the contention that the "last officially photographed appearance" of Hitler was actually that of his double, Gustav Weber, we are treated to the endnote stating that this was concluded by "[f]acial analysis by Alf Linney, professor of medical physics, University College London, commissioned by the authors...,' followed by a brief biography of Professor Linney, who, we are then told, "has proven scientifically that the man depicted ... in frames from ... [the] footage ... is not Adolf Hitler." But we are not given any idea as to what such scientific proof entails, or how such a conclusion was made.

The first third of the book is a brief history of the Second World War, information with which it may be safely assumed that anyone reading this book would be familiar.

Let me start by saying that this book is long overdue. It opens the door to much further deliberation and many considerations but it is exactly the sort of thing that WW2 history buffs and people interested the mystique of the 3rd reich cannot resist. There are certainly going to be those pundits who insist that this book is full of myths, exaggerations and hear-say. All I can say to that is that if you are well read and if you have travelled throughout the important parts of the world that this book focusses on, you have to come away believing that this book hits a homerun out of the park. At the very least, this book is a fun read for those who love the ultimate mystery of what happened to the most evil man who ever walked the earth. At best, it is the telling of facts long hushed, covered up and avoided altogether.

Albert Speer (as documented in his books) noted that the Hitler he saw in the bunker did not appear to look the same as the Hitler he new. Many others observed that the Hitler they saw in the bunker was sloppy, had crumbs on his lapel, spaghetti stains on his lips and other clues that would indicate the real Hitler would never appear this way. There are many other examples, tidbits and anecdotes in this book to be found as well. No matter what you chose to believe or subscribe to, you have to come away form this book believing it is entirely possible that he could have escaped and that there is no evidence to prove otherwise. Hitler had doubles and various secret getaways.

After over 60 years of the same story and the same pictures of "Hitler" greeting those young Hitler Jugend boys outside his bunker the masses have come to believe that there is only one story but is there?

I have a real problem with this book after the first few pages. In the preface of the book we have the following statement. "There is absolutely no accepted forensic evidence of Martin Bormann's supposed death; in 1998 German officials claimed that a skeleton buried near the Reichstag matched the DNA of an elderly relative of Bormann's.... Bormann's family refused to accept the findings. "This is a deliberate distortion of the facts. In 1972 his supposed body was identified by dental and skeletal records. In 1998 it was conclusively identified by DNA testing to be Bormann using DNA matching to one of Bormann's elderly relatives. there was no doubt and there remains none. There was no controversy. Bormann's family refused to accept the body in 1972, not findings in 1998. If this is the quality of the research in this book don't bother buying it. The authors are trying to deceive the reader by not being upfront with the real facts. The book falls if Bormann died, which he did. This is tabloid journalism, don't buy the book.

The authors put forth their own theories for Hitler's escape but put forward no hard physical evidence that any of it ever happened. They even state that certain italicized were their "conclusions" based on their intuitive thinking. That just isn'tgood enough. Show us one document that has ever surfaced with any credible evidence other than hearsay! Show us one eyewitness from the Bunker that saw anything that speaks of "doubles" -- There isn't any. The book is 291 pages in length without the footnotes --which are basically nothing but citing other books. Of those 291 pages of actual writing the first 135 or so have no real connection to Hitler's disapearance. Sure those pages are interesting but who cares how many V weapons were launched on London, how different enigma machines there ---- I wanted to know what happened to Hitler. And that did not come until around page 150 of a book that is only 291 pages!! Please, save you money, wish I had. Oh by the way I have been researching The Third Reich for over 40 years and have even spoken to people who were in the Bunker at that time.
