Convincing narrative but the evidence was cherry-picked & the text packed with irrelevant detail
on 9 January 2018
I read this back-to-back with "Hitler's Escape: 2nd Edition" by H. D. Baumann & Ron T. Hansig and "Hunting Hitler: New Scientific Evidence That Hitler Escaped Nazi Germany" by Jerome R. Corsi. Of the three Dunstain's work is the most polished and convincing. It eludes the full five stars because (when compared to the others) you realise just how much was left out. The narrative is convincing because it is very closely cherry-picked. What allegedly happened to Hitler and Eva between 1945 & 1961 is nothing more than a big paint box - you can mix it together to paint whatever picture you like. Yet the fundamentals remain. Dunstan follows the money - most of the book is about how the "Fourth Reich" was planned and funded. This is a good study although probably done-to-death and packed with utterly irrelevant detail. These superfluous details seem to be there to blind the reader from the fact that key parts of Hitler's escape are pure conjecture. Nevertheless this is an enjoyable work and the best available on the topic due to its professionalism.
