Overview

A guide to explore the history of a mountain

including GPS coordinates !

The architecture of the Third Reich has long been a subject of interest to historians throughout the world. Many books have addressed the topic; however, none have dealt in depth, with what may well be, the largest construction undertaken during the Third Reich period. This project was the construction of Adolf Hitler’s home and adjoining complexes on the Obersalzberg Mountain, in southern Germany, as well as the surrounding area. Since this period in German history remains a subject of great discussion, especially since Germany’s re-unification; this book will not deal with the political or moral questions surrounding the topic. This book is strictly intended to shed some light on the secrets of Hitler’s mountain, whose remains and ruins are quickly disappearing from the landscape.
