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
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.
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.
The narration was excellent.
No, the first one was bad enough.
Buy it if you have throw away credits and throw away time to listen to it.
Without more backup, this story is fiction
