it feels as though 80% of this book is the same as killing Patton. I would recommend that one and skipping Hitler's last days.

PLOT: more history of the "last days" of World War 2~ and less about Adolph Hitler.
I expected the DEMISE of Adolph Hitler and his last days in the bunker. That is not what I got. This starts with Wolfe Schanze~ the ultra secret hideout/ Hitler HQ in eastern Poland. We hear some excellent details of Hitler's life there and why he spent more time there even the Bomb Attempt by Stauffenberg. How his body and mind deteriorate from idiopathic Parkinson and his addictions fed by Dr. Morelle including cocaine eye drops and "methamphetamine injections" to keep him up and moving. Then it moves to an excellent detailed account of the "Battle of the Bulge" and Patton and Monty. this is interesting but again not "relevant" to Hitler's last days. The last few hours of Hitler including Ava Braun and last of the few die hard Nazis who stayed with Hitler. This is very FACINATING but WE wanted more Hitler and less historical battles. Worth the wait to here "Hitler's Will" dictated in the final hours in the bunker~ hidden by an aid of Bohrmann in a well. Over all 4 STARS but the narrator is good but mispronounced several names. BILL you need to "READ and narrate" your own books/ find the time. Still an interesting look at the final hours of "der Feuhrer".....CLARIFICATION: introduction ONLY is read by Bill O'Reilly and the rest by Robert Petkoff.
