The inner lives of the top Nazis and their families, Hitler's famous mistress---ultimately his wife---comes to three-dimensional life in this penetrating and critically acclaimed biography.

She left her convent school at the age of seventeen and met Hitler a few months later. She became his mistress before age twenty. They remained in an exclusive sexual relationship from 1932 until their joint suicides at the end of the war. Hitler's chauffeur called her "the unhappiest woman in Germany." The F#65533;hrer humiliated her in public while the top Nazis' wives despised her. Yet Albert Speer said: "She has been much maligned. She was very shy, modest. A man's woman: gay, gentle, and kind; incredibly undemanding . . . a restful sort of girl." This authoritative biography, only the second life of Eva Braun written in English, based on detailed new research, opens a new window on life at the cold heart of the Nazi leadership.

A door stopper of a biography that flows like a novel. Lambert skillfully and sympathetically shows the intriguing relationship between Hitler and Eva Braun. Fair minded, well researched and utterly fascinating. Did you know that Eva never joined the Nazi party?
A must-read.
