A fascinating read,

This review is from: Until the Final Hour: Hitler's Last Secretary (Hardcover)
I would definitely recommend this book to anyone with an interest in the WW2 era or the Third Reich.
I find it hard to believe that Traudl Junge really didn't know the truth about her employer until after the war. Indeed she hints that a guest once asked Hitler about whether he was aware of the treatment of the Jews so surely some alarm bells must have rung? That said, the author does say in her introduction that she is not asking for understanding and I think this helps to read the book for what it is, a historical account.
I found this book impossible to put down once I had entered Traudl Junge's world and her description of life in the bunker in Berlin with the Russians approaching on all sides makes you feel trapped and claustraphobic with her.
Read it, you won't be disappointed!
