Overview

Hitler's Secret by William Osborne

"An incredible adventure and a great page-turner!" -- Bear Grylls Otto and Leni thought they were safe: They escaped -- barely -- from war-torn Europe and are living as refugees in England. But now the Crown has recruited them: Great Britain wants them to go back. As spies! Dropped behind enemy lines, Otto and Leni embark on a top-secret operation. Code name: Wolfsangel. Their mission? Capture the one person who can defeat the ultimate evil of Nazism! Der Fuhrer has destroyed Otto's and Leni's families, but what if the tables were turned? What if Hitler's ultimate legacy was in their hands? Breathless pacing, nonstop action: By the screenwriter of Goldeneye, HITLER'S SECRET is a cinematic tale of revenge with an unexpected twist. A note by the author explains the truth behind the fiction and lets readers know what really became of history's greatest villains.

I just finished the book and I loved it. I hope there is a follow up with these two. It was a fast read. The beginning was a little slow but after the first couple of (short) chapters it never let you down.This book kept you hooked the rest of the way. I would recommend it!!

This was an excellent book.  Typically I am not a fan of WWII fiction, but “Hitler’s Secret” is well written with very real characters and a plot that is never dull or slow.  Although Otto and Leni are fictional characters, the author has chosen to incorporate into the story actual individuals who were very prominent during WWII such as Winston Churchhill, prime minister of Great Britain; Rudolf Hess, Hitler’s deputy in the Nazi Party; Reinhard Heydrich, Lieutenant General of the SS and regarded as one of the cruelest men of the Nazi regime.  The author’s inclusion of these individuals as characters within the book only enhanced the historical aspect.  While the author himself states in the book of this book that he “does not claim to be historically accurate or portray factual events or relationships,” There was not one thing in this book that I could not see actually happening during this time in history.   This book has a target audience of 12 years old and up (7th grade and up).  There are a few violent and graphic scenes within the book and therefore may not be entirely appropriate for the younger end of the target audience.  There is a murder-suicide that caught me by surprise and also a torture scene that includes Otto and Heydrich that was a somewhat intense.   But at the same time, these scenes give credibility to the historical time-frame.  As a parent, if you are considering this book for your younger child, just be aware. Overall, I really enjoyed “Hitler’s Secret.”  If the author chose to develop this into a series, I would welcome the opportunity to read any future stories about Otto and Leni! (rev.

This book is action-packed, and a great page turner. I couldn't put it down for a second! Please consider bringing Hitler's Angel to the Nook store.

If I could say anything about the book I read(which I can),I would say that it is a must read book. Not only I enjoy to read adventure books, but when the author knows how to write, he knows how to write. The author is descriptive but not overly obsessed with detail(that can get annoying). He is careful to try and stick with real life events, and he makes sure that what he has written does not defy real-life events. You can clearly see that the author had done his research and maybe even had experience in the events that happened in the book. He also includes a page that separates fact from fiction, and I thought that addition made his attempt at not contradicting real events obvious. I greatly enjoyed that the author made the characters use "gallow's humor" among themselves, making it seem they are very likely to die. However, the author does include scenes that can get slightly unbelievable. I guess while you are reading a book, you have yo remember that it's just a book. Over all i give this book a 4/5 stars. Truly this author is a master at what he does, and I feel I want to read some of his books in the future.

I bought this book at my schools Book Fair, but i never read it. Then my (favorite) teacher chose it for us to read as a class. As soon as i read a few chapters i regreted ever not reading it. An excellent page-turner with a twisty and thrilling plot. I would recomend this book to all, it is a wonderful novel. :)
