On April 30, 1945, Russian radar reported a light aircraft leaving the vicinity of the Tiergarten in Berlin. But who was on board, and where was the plane going?
Berlin was in ruins as the Russians moved relentlessly towards the concrete bunker where the Nazi administration was falling apart. But one man, Reichsleiter Martin Bormann, Adolf Hitler's secretary and eminence grise had a daring plan to escape.
Far away to the south-west, at Schloss Arlberg above the River Inn, five prisoners of war were contemplating their fate. Would they be murdered by their captors or liberated by the Russians?
Unbeknown to them, Bormann has his own plans. They are about to become part of a mystery that has fascinated the world for over 60 years. What exactly did happen to Bormann and his prisoners?
