Publisher's Summary

Did Hitler - code name "Grey Wolf" - really die in 1945? Gripping new evidence shows what could have happened.
When Truman asked Stalin in 1945 whether Hitler was dead, Stalin replied bluntly, "No." As late as 1952, Eisenhower declared: "We have been unable to unearth one bit of tangible evidence of Hitler's death." What really happened? Simon Dunstan and Gerrard Williams have compiled extensive evidence - some recently declassified - that Hitler actually fled Berlin and took refuge in a remote Nazi enclave in Argentina. The recent discovery that the famous "Hitler's skull" in Moscow is female, as well as newly uncovered documents, provide powerful proof for their case. Dunstan and Williams cite people, places, and dates in over 500 detailed notes that identify the plan's escape route, vehicles, aircraft, U-boats, and hideouts. Among the details: the CIA's possible involvement and Hitler's life in Patagonia - including his two daughters.

A Very Bizarre Little Audiobook

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

After listening to this book twice, I'm really confused. It's as if the authors spent a while writing a wide-ranging, but unoriginal reiteration of established WWII history, then realized how unremarkable (and unmarketable) their work was. Then, they decide to tack on this far-fetched Hitler survival tale. I'm not saying that this audiobook isn't entertaining. If you suspend all of your critical instincts, it makes a nice, light WWII pastiche. (Not quite history, not totally fiction.) But, this shouldn't be confused with a good WW II history book. (Wm. L. Shirer's Rise and Fall of the Third Reich is the mac-daddy of this genre...and really cheap on Audible.com.) Or, you can find an abundance of WW II fiction. But, this book doesn't really sit well in either genre. It's sort of a literary bait and switch. The outer appearances of this book and its initial passages suggest an intriguing story about Hitler surviving. But, after you buy it you find out that the vast majority of the book is a straight high school textbook-like reiteration of history, followed by a relatively bizarre goulash of stitched-together historical events, unsubstantiated reports, and conjectural sections. These conjectural sections are identified by the authors, in terms of where they start and stop. Its these sections that really make the book strange. Here's an example of the goulash:

- Start with a long, meandering preface (in the early part of the book) of general, reiterated WW II history.

- Switch to unsubstantiated "historical" reports about the preparations, actions, and results of Hitler's and Eva Braun's escape from Germany to Argentina.

- Insert one of these conjectural sections for titillation and color. One of the weirdest was one about the Hitler couple's visit to some German controlled Argentine resort, where they had monogrammed "AH" towels, etc.

I think you get the idea. Don't buy this book, if you want real history. Don't buy it, if you want good fiction. This book is the province of conspiracy thinkers and the semi-educated.


What could Simon Dunstan and Gerrard Williams have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

They could have been less wishy washy. Decide what you want to write. Write history, write fiction, or write historical fiction. This book is none of the above.


What does Don Hagen bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

The narration was excellent.


Do you think Grey Wolf needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

No, the first one was bad enough.


Any additional comments?

Buy it if you have throw away credits and throw away time to listen to it.

Without more backup, this story is fiction

Dunstan and Williams have approached an intriguing idea in a most unintriguing way. Did Hitler escape to Argentina in 1945 with the help of Martin Bormann? He could have. But there are too many holes in the Dunstan and Williams narrative to make an enlightened case. Specifically, they spend half the book dwelling on WWII history, which is time they could have spent proving their case. There is precious solid evidence here. If Hitler died in Argentina, where's the body for DNA testing? If he had daughters, where are they or their bodies for DNA testing? Ditto Eva Braun. And then there's the fact that the body of Martin Bormann, Hitler's major domo who was supposedly tooling around South America for years after the war, was actually unearthed years after WWII in Berlin, right around the spot a witness saw him die in May 1945. Dunstan and Williams never address that fact. One can only assume that they avoided it because they didn't have a good response. Relegate this one to fiction. It's too sloppy to be a credible work of scholarship.
