Overview

Nicolaus von Below was a 29-year-old pilot when Goering selected him for the position of Hitler's Luftwaffe adjutant. He was with Hitler at every stage as the Second World War unfolded. His observations tell of Hitler's responses to momentous events as well as military decisions and policy-making at Führer Headquarters. This is a superb source describing life in Hitler's inner circle, relied upon on by Gitta Sereny in her biography of Albert Speer.

He provides fascinating insight into how Hitler planned the invasions of Poland and Russia, what he thought of Britain and America, why he placed his faith in the V-1 and V-2 projects, how others dealt with him, and much more. Von Below was present at the assassination attempt in July 1944, and records the effect on Hitler and his followers.

At Hitler's Side: The Memoirs of Hitler's Luftwaffe Adjutant 4 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.
Anonymous More than 1 year ago
It is always fascinating to read the memoirs of those actually there to see and know what was happening. It would seem Von Below had more input with Hitler than Goering. The world of the Luftwaffe held paths to victory which could have led to a very different outcome to the war. The view of the author gives insight as to why the decisions made were followed. A good read but not the final word in all things of Hitler's circle of intimates.
