Book Description

7 Oct 2011
Did Hitler (code name Grey Wolf) really die in 1945? The evidence says no. Heres the gripping story of what might 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.

3.0 out of 5 stars Grey Wolf On The Run 8 Feb 2012
Format:Hardcover
The authors of this book point out that there is no actual forensic evidence to prove that Adolf Hitler committed suicide in his bunker in 1945. The alleged Hitler skull that the Russians had in their possession for decades has been tested and turns out to be that of a woman under 40 years of age - definitely not Adolf Hitler's (unless there's some other revelation coming out in another book soon!) The skull of this woman appears to have gunshot wounds on it and there are no reports of Eva Braun shooting herself, so it appears it couldn't be her skull either.

The authors believe that Martin Boorman convinced Hitler to flee to Argentina with all the ill-gotten gains of the Nazis in a U-Boat with Eva Braun and Hitler's dog Blondi. They even give a date when Hitler really died - February 13th 1962.

Did Nazis flee to South America? Yes, they did, oddly helped by the Vatican (is it possible to have worse PR than the Vatican these days?). The Nazis called these escape routes "rat lines" and some of the worst war criminals in history used them like Doctor Josef Mengele from Auschwitz and Adolf Eichmann, the architect of the Holocaust along with many other nefarious characters.

The big question is - did Adolf Hitler flee to South America by U-Boat also? Hmm, I'm not too sure about that. We know that Hitler was a control freak who never listened to anyone, that's why Germany made so many disastrous mistakes in World War II that lead to their defeat. I find it hard to believe that he would listen to Boorman and flee. Hitler's ego was too huge to contemplate a boring, quiet life in hiding having been the most powerful man in the world at one stage.

By marcoscu TOP 500 REVIEWER

I fully expected just to give this a cursory listening before dumping it with maybe a scathing review. In fact I found it fascinating and absorbing. The book is read by American narrator Don Hagen with just a few proununciations that are grating the the British ear but with a dry, clear and firm delivery that does not try to over sell the text.

It has masses of padding with long tangents about many related and entirely unrelated topics, a literary tactic that usually annoys me greatly and is a reason in itself for walking away from a tedious read. Yet not here for the long asides are in fact so well written and interesting that they did not bother me at all.

So am I now convinced that Adolf, Eva and Blondi escaped the bunker in 1945? Well, no, the wealth of detail the book goes into is just too much and too easily debunked by hiatory and plain common sense. I remember once listening to a radio host who challenged callers to his show to prove to him that the world was round and not flat. By his gift of the gab, quick wit and erudition he was able to refute all their arguments but at the end of the day the world was still round. This book is very well written, has the gloss veneer that comes with detailed research but ultimately it just cannot convince me that everything I have read elsewhere and the work of every academic and historian is wrong.

That said, I really did enjoy this book and would be happy to urge others to read it. There is masses of obscure history to be found within. Read it, enjoy it, be better informed than you were before but just don't expect to be convinced.

2.0 out of 5 stars Interesting.... but tosh all the same 29 Dec 2011
By Chris
Format:Hardcover
This is an entertaining read, but having watched the vehemence of Gerrard Williams' defence of his theory that Hitler escaped to Argentina on Sky News I did expect the book to be rather stronger in terms of historical rigour.

A couple of salient points (although there are many problems with the thesis.. alas I do not have the time to list):

- Martin Bormann not dying in May 1945 is central to Grey Wolf. Gerrard Williams has claimed elsewhere that the DNA testing on his body in 1998 is not accepted by his family and they do not know the identity of the supposed 83 year old relative who gave the sample. I really do think the authors should have picked up (after 5 years of research after all) that Martin Bormann Jr, his eldest son, gave the sample. And was satisfied with the results:

[....]

- The escape flight to Denmark. The pilot (on whom this part of the thesis hangs) claimed that he landed briefly in Magdeburg on the way to Denmark. That is extremely odd. Did the US Army provide toilet facilities and refreshment to the Fuhrer? The 9th US Army took Magdeburg on 19 April. If that part of his account is a bit suspect, well...

When you look through the (very poorly endnoted) documentary evidence behind the prose there really is not much there at all.

Enjoyed reading it and it does contribute some interesting angles (hence the two stars) but given that the "case is presented" with such force, it has to be judged on the merits of its historical argument. On that it fails. Badly.

1.0 out of 5 stars Pure Fantasy 12 Mar 2014
By Michael
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I purchased the hardback edition of this book upon its release. One of the authors main point in the book, is that there is no actual forensic evidence to prove that Adolf Hitler committed suicide in his bunker in 1945. Well there is no actual forensic evidence that Hitler died elsewhere either.The author talks about the lack of evidence if Hitlers death went to a coroners court,yet in the making of the book he does not interview those who saw him last eg Linge,Misch,Junge. Surely if you are writing a book about the history of hitlers whereabouts you would want to talk to those who saw him last,The coroners court certainly would. This is one of many contradictions in this book.

The author also fails to research about Adolf Hitler the person,his personality,his ethics,his views, and most importantly how he,like many other military people who served in WW1,felt a sense of betrayal and unjust at the treaty of Versailles.Also the huge turmoil in there beloved fatherland as there country descends into chaos and possibly being ruled by communism,which was a serious threat at the time. Hitler and his comrades risked life and death to get there country back,many died in this struggle.Hitler eventually got Germany back for the people,solved mass unemployment,restored family values and traditions,gave the german people a sense of being and pride. Hitler devoted his life,effort,time,loyalty to achieve all that.He made himself ill as he achieved these things.He did it not for personal greed and finance,not for ego,not for popularity,not so he would be liked.He did it as he loved his country,his people. In his own words,he said he will not get married as he is married to the german people.
