The view point of someone who saw Hitler close up and away from the public personaRochus Misch became a member of Hitler’s staff and later was in the Fuhrer Bunker when Hitler committed suicide in 1945Written in a very simple style Misch describes his life from his almost accidental enlistment in the SS through to his 8 years in Soviet prison campsThe book doesn’t really cover anything not seen in other books although I did learn that Hitler was secret bowling fan There are some interesting pen portraits of Eva Braun and Paula Hitler Hitler’s sister but not enough substance to give you any major insight into what made them tickI kept getting the feeling that we weren’t hearing everything and as such found the book somewhat disappointing That being said it does provide a rare 1st person description of the final days of the Reich

J'étais garde du corps d'Hitler 1940 1945 Témoignage receuilli par Nicolas BourcierEr Hitler committed suicide Misch knew Hitler as the private man and his position was one of unconditional loyalty His memoirs offer an intimate view of life in close attendance to Hitler and of the endless hours deep inside the bunker and provide new insights into military events such as Hitler's initial feelings that the th Army should pull out of Stalingrad Shortly before he died Misch wrote a new introduction for this first ever English language edition The book also contains a foreword garde du corps d'Hitler 1940 PDF by the Jewish author Ralph Giordano and a new introduction by Roger Moorhouse REVIEWS Misch's memoir is full of details asides and digressions which allow the reader a rare and fascinating insight int. I received a copy of Hitler's Last Witness from NetGalley In exchange I offer this my fair and honest reviewFew people had ready access to the Fuhrer Adolph Hitler Few who did lived to tell stories of the man and his actions from the inside Rochus Misch a member of Hitler’s staff and later in charge of the telephones where Hitler stayed from time to time was the last surviving member of this small groupMisch tells his story of how he came to his position He insists throughout that he knew nothing and heard nothing of the millions of deaths in the concentration camps while serving Hitler Indeed he writes that he only ever saw one report on the camps and that from an International Red Cross report that “contained nothing disturbing” At the outset I found this idea highly difficult to believe Yet when I read Misch’s story I found he was able to reiterate the smallest of details of Hitler’s daily life and moves yet he seemed rather uninterested in larger affairs His concerns were simply to “do his job” for the Third Reich and not to cross any lines that might get him in trouble as he had seen others do only to find themselves on the front line—or killed He barely noticed when a colleague “went away” which meant he went to a concentration camp or was sent to the front One example was of a guard who failing to keep a mosuito from Hitler was sent packing For his part Misch stuck to the rules He wouldn’t even dance with Eva Braun when Hitler was away and she threw a spontaneous party because “she was the Fuhrer’s girl”It was the little details of Germany before and during WWII of the lives of Hitler and his associates that I found most intriguing in this read I noted Misch’s descriptions of the places where they stayed of the people and personalities of Hitler and his associates and the “rules” the staff followed so as not to bother “the boss” such as not to wear boots that made “deep impressions on the thick carpet” Really Risch met Hitler’s siblings and half siblings Eva Braun and so many others He tells of how Hitler and Eva Braun acted publicly that he never saw any intimacies between them nor did his colleagues and of their last hours together when the two were married Does it matter to anyone that Hitler knew all his staff on sight and by name or that he had a “first class” memory or that he rarely showed anger Does it matter that he knew who would attend a dinner That he never carried a weapon or that those who surrounded him often did—and that it seems he had no fear of that Does it matter that Misch never saw Hitler laugh out loud That the Fuhrer had a favorite dog—Blondie—who performed tricks for him That he joked about always being the last to know anything that was going on around him That he had poor vision but did not want others to know because he thought it showed weakness Does it matter that we know the type of car Hitler preferred to ride in Or that he liked to bowl or to watch films Perhaps not From an historical perspective Hitler is a monster But Misch’s account does show that even monstrous people are—people This “humanizing “ does not make Hitler a sympathetic character but it does show me what people can be capable of doingAlso posted at wwwOathtakercom on Booklikes and added to Facebook and tweeted
