From the Publisher
In September 1945, the fate of Adolf Hitler was a complete mystery. Missing for four months, he had simply disappeared. Hugh Trevor–Roper, a British intelligence officer, was given the task of solving the mystery. His brilliant piece of detective work proved finally that Hitler had killed himself in Berlin. It also produced one of the most fascinating history books ever written. Originally published in 1947 and now revised, The Last Days of Hitler
tells the extraordinary story of those final days of the Thousand Year Reich—a dramatic, carefully planned finale to a terrible chapter of history.
