Eva Braun, Friends and Family

This book doesn't give you anything really new about Eva, but it does give a little bit more of a rounded background and picture of her. The author does bring in alot of characters some we know already (like Hitler and his inner circle) and some you might know so well (like her family members and co-workers). I feel that the author by bringing in others in Eva and Hitler's life, the reader gets a feel for how she reacted, also how some of them reacted and felt about her. I found this especially true when reading about how the wives of the inner circle characters. But, like all the biographies written about her, she is revealed as a person that Hitler kept in the shadows, but you learn he did this with all the "secretaries" that worked for him, when important visitors come to call at the Berghof. In case you didn't know she listed as one of many "secretaries" Hitler had around him . However, you will learn she had an interest in other things that revolved around her, such as her pets, shopping and fashion, picture taking (the films we now have of Hitler are home movies she made) and her family, but she was also dutiful and loyal to Hitler to the end. An was she so foolish.. she paid the supreme sacrifice for the man she loved and went down in history as the wife of Hitler, foolish? perhaps. All in all its an excellent read and will definitely hold the attention of any "Hitlerphile" or WWII addict. Yes you will read alot about Hitler and his little quirks and habits from the time she met Hitler and their death.

Not much about Eva Braun

Interesting book but not a book about Eva Braun. Most is about Hitler and his followers. Only occasional references to Eva Braun. Seems like the author had little to say about Eva Braun but needed to fill out a full book and chose to rehash Hitler stories
