Hitler\'s Headquarters 1939-1945

Hitler's Headquarters 1939-1945 is a superb photographic record of the full range of headquarters from where Hitler exerted his iron grip on the Nazi war effort. Being pathological about his security, he divided his time between his numerous HQs spread across his empire.

These HQs include his Berlin bunker, the Wolf's Lair (Wolfschanze), The Eagle's Nest and the Führer's train. Through images, captions and supporting text, the author describes the extraordinary lengths that the Nazis had to go to meet the Führer's requirements. We gain an insight into the atmosphere of fear and boredom, interspersed with outbursts of rage often against his generals, that existed in these extraordinary installations. Constructing these complexes was in itself an enormous engineering and building challenge achieved by the Todt Organization using slave labour in many cases.

This fascinating book, the latest in the Images of War series, concludes with the Fuhrer's final days in Chancellery bunker as the Russians closed in on Berlin.
