Hunting Hitler on History: Bibliography for Armchair Sleuths

By | November 15, 2016

Hunting Hitler on History takes armchair sleuths from the ratlines of Europe to the hideouts of South America.  Here’s a supplemental bibliography.

The following books have been read by yours truly and meet rigorous approval standards which include, but are not limited to, wild rides of excitement, intrigue, salacious details, strange men crossing Alpine passes by the dark of night and riding burros down the cat paths of South American backwaters.

Included are the titles, authors and interesting highlights.

The Hunt For Martin Bormann by Charles Whiting.  Adolf Hitler supposedly left five identical, leather bound, copies of his last will and testament.  None of these have ever surfaced.  Perhaps this would be the ultimate flea market find.  There are tales of debauchery in the Berlin bunker.

The Murder Of Adolf Hitler by Hugh Thomas.  A forensic expert and surgeon makes the case for murder.  Prosecution is doubtful, however.  There is more debauchery in the Berlin bunker.

Inside Hitler’s Bunker by Joachim Fest.  Women of the Soviet Army looted the Berlin bunker of its treasure trove of lingerie.  The spoils of war, who knew?  Even more incredible debauchery in the waning days and hours in the Berlin bunker.  Are you sensing a theme here?

With Hitler To The End by Heinz Linge.  Features literature, music and art appreciation parties at the Obersalzberg, high in the Bavarian Alps.

Hunting Eichmann by Neal Bascomb.  A fantastic look at the origins of the Mossad and its early actions.  After grabbing Adolf Eichmann, the Mossad team tried for an incredible second kidnapping while in Argentina.  Also, a harrowing commercial flight out of Argentina with their captive was almost thwarted on a scheduled stop in Brazil.

By the way, there was an excellent film which also covers the discovery and kidnapping of Adolf Eichmann, The Man Who Captured Eichmann (1996).  Additionally, per IMDb, Hunting Eichmann appears to be in development as a movie.  It would be something of an understatement to say that this should be highly anticipated.

For anyone interested, the above books can fill-in some of the details touched upon in Hunting Hitler on History.
