From the cover: “When the Red Army was only a few hundred metres away from his Berlin bunker, Hitler took his own life, telling his entourage, ‘I will not have it that they take my body back to Moscow to exhibit in a cabinet of curiosities‘.

Similarly, Stalin had never been able to shake off the nightmare of Adolf Hitler. The Soviet leader ordered his secret police 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. This is the testimony of the head of Hitler’s personal household, Sturmbannführer Heinz Linge, and his last SS adjutant, Sturmbannführer Otto Günsche, captured by Soviet troops shortly after they had disposed of the Führer’s body.

A compelling first-hand narrative of a decade of service in Hitler’s headquarters, it was presented to Stalin in a limited edition of one, and for over fifty years was kept under lock and key in a Russian archive. Never before published in its entirety, it is groundbreaking not only as one of the most authentic sources of information on the Third Reich and its innermost circles, but also as a portrait of a tyrant for a tyrant.”
