By early 1945 the destruction of the German Nazi state seems certain. The Allied forces, led by American generals George S. Patton and Dwight D. Eisenhower, are gaining control of Europe, leaving German leaders scrambling. Facing defeat, Adolf Hitler flees to a secret bunker with his new wife, Eva Braun, and his beloved dog, Blondi. It is there that all three would meet their ends, thus ending the Third Reich and one of the darkest chapters of history.
Hitler's Last Days is a gripping account of the death of one of the most reviled villains of the 20th century - a man whose regime of murder and terror haunts the world even today. Adapted from Bill O'Reilly's historical thriller Killing Patton, this audiobook will have young listeners - and grown-ups, too - hooked on history.

Accessible and compelling
I would recommend this book for its ease of understanding and the information it contains on historical events and the people who were part of it.
This was the first I read by performed by Robert Petkoff. He is excellent. Bill O'Reilly's reading is good for the introduction. I'm glad that Petkoff read the text of the book though, since his voice is much more pleasing to the ear and he obviously has acting training. His phrasing ability to portray the thoughts and words of the characters is top notch.
I never want to listen to a book in one sitting unless it is a murder mystery with the whodunit in the last 5 pages like one by Dean Kootnz. Even then, I would prefer to extend my enjoyment of a work of art by a consummate artist. That said, this book is gripping and moves along. It grabs the imagination.
I commend Mr. O'Reilly for making the effort to put history before the hearts and minds of youth and even adults with this book. We need citizens who know history.
