Guarding Hitler provides an inside look at the secret world of Adolf Hitler’s security and domestic arrangements. Using new and rare research material, some only declassified in 2010, the book draws on intelligence documents, personal testimonies, memoirs, and official histories to provide a fascinating inside look into Hitler’s world. In particular, the book focuses on both the official and private life of Hitler during the latter part of the war, at the Wolf’s Lair at Rastenburg and at Berchtesgaden. Offering fresh insights into the life and routine of the Führer, and most importantly the often indiscreet opinions, observations, and activities of the people who surrounded Hitler. Guarding Hitler allows the reader to delve deeper into this previously overlooked but nonetheless fascinating aspect of the world’s most infamous man.
