Description
In her groundbreaking biography of Eva Braun, German historian Heike Görtemaker delves into the startlingly neglected historical truth about Adolf Hitler's mistress. More than just the vapid blonde of popular cliché, Braun was a capricious but uncompromising and a fiercely loyal companion to Hitler—a relationship that flew in the face of the Führer's proclamations that Germany was his only bride. Görtemaker paints a portrait of Hitler and Braun's surprisingly bourgeois life together—Braun chose the movies screened at their mountaintop retreat (propaganda, of course), while he dreamed of retiring with her to Linz one day after relinquishing his leadership to a younger man—while weaving their personal relationship throughout the fabric of one of history's most devastating regimes.

"A riveting account.... Braun may not have influenced Nazi policies, but thanks to Görtemaker's groundbreaking work, it is now clear how Braun catered to Hitler, fostering his reliance on cronies and lackeys and reinforcing his tendency to shut himself off from the awful reality of what was happening to Germany and to the world."—Minneapolis Star Tribune
