9780719554995: The Hitler Book

Joseph Stalin had never been able to shake off the nightmare of Adolf Hitler. Just as in 1941 he refused to understand that Hitler had broken their non-aggression pact, he was in 1945 unwilling to believe that the dictator had committed suicide in the debris of the Berlin bunker. In his paranoia, Stalin ordered his secret police, the NKVD, precursor to the KGB, to explore in detail every last vestige of the private life of the only man he considered a worthy opponent, and to clarify beyond doubt the circumstances of his death. For months two captives of the Soviet Army-Otto Guensche, Hitler's adjutant, and Heinz Linge, his personal valet-were interrogated daily, their stories crosschecked, until the NKVD were convinced that they had the fullest possible account of the life of the Furher. In 1949 they presented their work, in a single copy, to Stalin. It is as remarkable for the depth of its insight into Adolf Hitler-from his specific directions to Linge as to how his body was to be burned, to his sense of humor-as for what it does not say, reflecting the prejudices of the intended reader: Joseph Stalin. Nowhere, for instance, does the dossier criticize Hitler's treatment of the Jews. Today, the 413-page original of Stalin's personal biography of Hitler is a Kremlin treasure and it is said to be held in President Putin's safe. The only other copy, made by order of Stalin's successor, Nikita Khrushchev, in 1959, was deposited in Moscow Party archives under the code number 462A. It was there that Henrik Eberle and Matthias Uhl, two German historians, found it. Available to the public in full for the first time, The Hitler Book presents a captivating, astonishing, and deeply revealing portrait of Hitler, Stalin, and the mutual antagonism of these two dictators, who between them wrought devastation on the European continent. "An astonishingly intimate portrait" of the Furher-commissioned by, written for, and read by Joseph Stalin, before it disappeared into Soviet archives. Until now. -The Times "This revelatory document was an extraordinary find and gives an absorbing, truly disturbing, account of Hitler and his demonic court."-Publishers Weekly

From AudioFile:

Few books can offer a more compelling, or a more chilling, glimpse into the minds of Adolf Hitler and Joseph Stalin than THE HITLER BOOK, the recently discovered top-secret dossier commissioned by Stalin. In addition to outlining every aspect of the German dictator's life, behavior, and personality, the book also provides a frightening look into the world of Stalin. Listening to Michael Prichard's low-key reading will cause shivers as listeners gain new insight into the German and Russian mentalities of the era. Prichard reads unobtrusively, as though he were a camera merely trying to capture an event without the participants' awareness. The result is a fascinating, albeit somewhat long, book.

Descripción John Murray General Publishing Division, United Kingdom, 2006. Paperback. Estado de conservación: New. Language: N/A. Brand New Book. On breaking open the Berlin Bunker on 2 May 1945, Soviet troops captured two of Adolf Hitler s closest associates: his personal valet, Heinz Linge, and his SS adjutant, Otto Guensche. The two men had just disposed of the bodies of Hitler and Eva Braun. On Stalin s orders they were questioned for two years, to produce this astonishing fly-on-the wall account of all they saw in Hitler s headquarters, where they had worked since 1933. It has been held in top-level Russian archives since 1949. The book contains remarkable insight into Hitler s daily life before and during the Second World War. Chilling, revealing and compellingly readable, it is one of the most authentic sources of information in existence on the history of the Third Reich, unique in the circumstances of its compilation and its closeness in time to the events described.
