Hitler in Argentina: The Documented Truth of Hitle&hellip by Harry Cooper
4.0 out of 5 stars A Bridge too far, 18 Jun 2014
The layout of this book is not well thought and it is hard not to distract when reading the book. The only thing that is of interest to me is whether Hitler died in the bunker or have been saved by others and have him and Eva shipped by a U-boat to Argentina but the sad thing is that it is not necessarily convincing and the plot looks too easy indeed so that either I would say it is unbelievable or at least I would say doubtful.

'Until the Bitter End' is not funny and not a fiction we could enjoy as it would be all about the under-supplied and under- equipped and daily decimated Wehrmacht as well as the Waffen SS's sacrifice so as to delay the arrival of the Soviet Guards Corps and other soldiers to arrive in the German mother land, which would… Read more
