Hitler at the Obersalzberg: With Perceptions
Hitler at the Obersalzberg is a comprehensive history of Hitlers activities at the mountain community from 19231945. The study begins with legends surrounding the area long before the arrival of Hitler and his cronies. Attention is given to the physical setting, the development of the Nazi community, and the important conferences and meetings, which took place there. There is considerable discussion concerning everyday life and activities centered at the Berghof, Hitlers mountain retreat. A glimpse of the competition, which developed between Hermann Goering and Martin Bormann, became evident. Interspersed throughout the narrative are interviews by the author with Paula Hitler, Johann Langwieder, and Hans Baur, which provide interesting perceptions of the Fuehrer, Adolf Hitler.
