3.0 out of 5 stars A Flawed Book, 9 April 2012
This review is from: Until the Final Hour: Hitler's Last Secretary (Paperback)
If you have seen the film Downfall this book may be a disappointment . Not a disappointment because of the core of the book written in 1947 by Traudl Junge , but rather because of those sections written by Melissa Muller . Muller , in line with a number of reviewers of this book , has to be judgemental in her approach to Junge . She has an agenda , believing that Junge should have felt overwelming guilt , and cannot cope with the fact that Junge didn't . Junge is an important historical witness , nothing else . It is a flaw to impose character judgements on her from a modern perspective .

Terry -

your remark on the ex-post views of Melissa Müller is very pertinent. I read the book in the original German version and do not remember such instances, but cannot check this right now. If at all, Müller should have mentioned such views in a foreword. It would be interesting to compare the English edition with the German one.
