"A powerfully vivid documentary reconstruction of Adolf Hitler's final days". ; 8vo 8" - 9" tall; 416 pages; From a Reviewer: "A Fascinating Descent into Madness.......O'Donnell was a Signal Corps captain, and one of the first Americans to enter the bunker in July of 1945. His sleuth style of research, combined with exhaustive interviews of Hitlers inner circle have allowed him to re-create for the reader almost exactly what happened in the last two weeks of April 1945. All the major players are described in detail, and every personality type is present in this underground fortress, with its gasproof design, cast iron doors and two seperate levels. You will feel the desperation of these committed and loyal Nazis as the ring around Berlin tightens, and their chances for escape dwindle. O'Donnell covers the most intimate details behind not only the final days, but how each member gained their position of influence, who despised whom, Hitlers manic episodes and his heavy sedation, and the small fish in this pond are not overlooked either, down to the enlisted men who kept the generators running and the switchboard operating, and even these seemingly routine operations were not without interference from some members of the group......
