Sinopsis:

Book by Junge Traudl

Críticas:

'To have such an uncomplicated, unaffected witness present at some of the key, defining moments of the 20th century was fortunate for historians. Frau Junge's book has sold 100,000 copies in Germany, and it is easy to see why: her testimony rings absolutely true, when other politically motivated accounts of the last days of Hitler do not.' (Andrew Roberts THE EVENING STANDARD (13.10.03) )

'Traudl Junge's memoir is a very unusual, and useful, addition to the canon of literature that seeks to explain Hitler. Junge was at her 'Fuhrer's' side for three years as his trusted secretary, and her fluent account sheds light on what it was like to be a believer in his power.' (Elena Lappin DAILY TELEGRAPH (19.10.03) )

'Junge had a sharp eye for detail and she conveys a good sense of the atmosphere among Hitler's entourage...Junge's memoirs, sandwiched between good editorial insights by Melissa Muller, provide a powerful impression of the deep sense of unreality that envoloped the court of Hitler in its last years.' (Ian Kershaw MAIL ON SUNDAY (2.11.03) )

'Until the Final Hour is a remarkable historical document...But more than this, it is another painful reminder of how it is possible for a person - or even an entire nation - to sleepwalk slowly into sin.' (Rachel Cooke OBSERVER (9.11.03) )

'The unfolding doom, her typing up Luftwaffe losses before skipping off for another Champagne supper with the leader (who preferred mineral water), the claustrophobia within the increasingly fortified bunkers, and eventually the physical and spiritual decline of the Fuhrer as he accepted defeat are grippingly recounted...compelling.' (Jenny Hjul THE SCOTSMAN (11.10.03) )

'There have been countless memoirs of former functionaries of the Nazi regime but this may well be the last, first-hand account from one of Hitler's inner circle, and is possibly the most vivid.' (Simon Eder JEWISH CHRONICLE (14.11.03) )

'Frank and gripping, the book shows another side to the megalomaniacal murderer...A fascinating fly-on-the-wall glimpse at history's most infamous despot, that watches him descend in two and a half years from ultimate power to a feeble, beaten old man.' (Neville Marten INK MAGAZINE (December '03) )

'...a moving story of one woman's gradual realisation of her own complicity in the crimes of the Nazis.' (JACK (December '03) )

'Junge offers fine descriptions...[she] portrays the real character of the Fuhrer's court...a fascinating insight into how ordinary Germans saw Hitler...[she] writes splendidly.' (David Cesarani LITERARY REVIEW (December 2003) )

'...a fascinating, feminine view of Hitler's charm, charisma and awfulness...Compelling.' (Alan Judd SPECTATOR (22.11.03) )
