Braun, and Building Lean Companies.
Despite the historical consensus that Hitler killed himself at the end of World War II, there still linger many unanswered questions and doubts. In this well-researched book, Baumann, a survivor of World War II himself, paints a vivid picture of the last days of the German dictator Adolf Hitler, and provides answers to such compelling questions as: Was the Russian leader J. Stalin telling the truth when he told U.S. President Harry Truman and others that Hitler had escaped? Why was it that the Russians never found the corpses of Hitler or Eva Braun? If Hitler shot himself in the right temple (as is claimed), why do the Russians exhibit what is claimed to be Hitler's cranium, showing a bullet hole in the back of his head-but actually belonged to a 30 year old woman? Why did the Russians refuse to allow the Western Allies to see Hitler's presumed autopsy report? Why did the Russians exhibit the corpse of Hitler's double, believing it to be the real thing? What was the reason for the disagreement between the Russian military intelligence (SMERSH) and the Russian secret state police (NKVD) regarding Hitler? For what reason did Hitler's plane land in Barcelona, Spain, on April 27, 1945, three days before the alleged suicide? Why did three German submarines land at the coast of southern Argentina more than two months after the end of World War II?

I saw Dr. Baumann on TV in a recent HISTORY CHANNEL show entitled "Hitler'sEscape", were his no-nonsense and factual comments were very convincing. His presentation were based on facts rather than on speculations. His thorough research established facts devastated the British Governement inspired myth of Hitler's suicide.
Finally the facts about Hitler's last days in Berlin Unlike many non-sensical books claiming that Hitler escaped to the South Pole, that he was smuggled out of Berlin by a Spanish spy, or waded through dark and flooded sub-way tunnels, this book is a serious, scholarly presentation of the real facts sourrounding Hitler's last days in the bunker and the charade that was organized to cover his and Eva Braun's escape. The author's research spanned six years and covered all known publications and interrogation reports, including those fromRussian sources. Baumann's first book (Hitler's Fate), had sufficient credibility that he was featured in a 2009 History Channel show entitled HITLER'S ESCAPE. Attesting to the quality of work by the authors, nobody has come forward to challenge their findings from the first date of publication (2005) to the present. The fact, that the primary author himself was a victim of the Nazi regime (his father was imprisent at Auschwitz) gives him credibility.
