By early 1945, the destruction of the German Nazi State seems certain. The Allied forces, led by American generals George S. Patton and Dwight D. Eisenhower, are gaining control of Europe, leaving German leaders scrambling. Facing defeat, Adolf Hitler flees to a secret bunker with his new wife, Eva Braun, and his beloved dog, Blondi. It is there that all three would meet their end, thus ending the Third Reich and one of the darkest chapters of history.
Hitler's Last Days is a gripping account of the death of one of the most reviled villains of the 20th century—a man whose regime of murder and terror haunts the world even today. Adapted from Bill O'Reilly's historical thriller Killing Patton, this book will have young readers—and grown-ups too—hooked on history.
This thoroughly-researched and documented book can be worked into multiple aspects of the common core curriculum.
Appears to be very high level...
After reading the sample of O’Reilly’s book, I would highly recommend that anyone interested in this (and especially with the final fall of the Reich) pick up a copy of Hugh Trevor-Roper’s "The Last Days of Hitler”. It is incredibly throrough and he was actually on the ground in Germany researching this topic in the months following the war. It is written with great style and craft and gives a vivid and fascinating look at the “inner circle” that followed Hitler to his end.
Fantastic job Mr. O'Reilly!
I wanted a light historical read on this subject since being a Chemistry major in college, history classes are not a focus. I also could not recall ever studying Hitler and the war in any great detail throughout school, so this touched base nicely on details I missed out on and much more. Also being a watcher of "The Factor" on Fox News every day, I am thrilled to support Bill because I enjoy his refreshing and thoughtful style of rhetoric, which is rare to hear from peers or professors in college. I look forward to buying all of his other books. Thank you Mr. O'Reilly!
Hitler's Last Days
OK. Nothing new. History 101, but then who even takes history Amy more? Good for a novice.
