Six days after realising the war was lost hitler received the news that heinrich himmler was trying to negotiate germanys surrender with the americans apoplectic with rage over this betrayal hitler declared himmler a traitor and had his ss representative the loathsome hermann fegelein taken out and shot. The last days of hitler is one of those books i have been intending to read for a number of years it fully met my expectations trevor roper was asked by the head of counter intelligence in the british zone of berlin to determine what exactly happened to hitler he filed his report and then wrote this book.
